    Bubbye, don't let the door hitcha in your wide-but-smooth arse.

    As an aside, even the guys at Surly would be quick to point out that it was NOT the first fatbike tire.

    First mass-produced fat bike tire?

    It's a shame to lose such an awesome road tire.

    Many happy miles on endo's... That said every other tire offered now in the size/price range is better.

    Commented on this on Vik's "send me your Endo's" thread... don't want to repeat myself.

    So long ol' pal! Been nice knowin' ya!!

    Mikesee, what was the 1st production, fat specific tire? Not the 3" Gazzi's, though they and others were used for "Fat", they were DH specific production wise. The only other I can recall is the Tornel (poss. misspelled) of which there were very few of and hard to come by. Was there another?

    The Remolino tires predate the endo by at least 5 years. There were not many bikes that could take the tires, so few of them were built, but I think it could still be considered a production fatbike tire.

    I believe that was also known as the Tornel (Tornell?). It was also pretty low profile because fat bikes started out closer to 26er's and hadn't "grown the stay's and fork's to handle the taller stuff yet. It had a cool chevron tread though... love to have a bigger version of that for sand!

    The Remolino 3.5" sand tires were made by the Tornel Tire Co. in Mexico, for Ray Molina. So, yes, they are the same thing.

    Not that Surly needs more on their plate, but they really ought to bring back the skin wall version of the Endo, call it a "heritage edition" charge a ton of dough for it, and make all the purple pug owners weep with nostalgia......

    The endomorph tire is the single most important factor in the spread of fatbikes. Surly built it and they came. Thank you Surly.

    What other continuing tire models have a carcass with the same flat profile as the endo? THe larrys I have to compare with my endo is a more rounded shape and has a noticeably narrower footprint.

    So what is the 2013 Pugs coming with on the rear? The Surly site still lists Endo.

    The Knard has worked well for me on one of my fatbikes in dirt, sand, and a much better tire on concrete for me. No small triangles to wear out on the center of the tire either.

    I like the Endo'. On the rear, on sand it's fine.

    But I'm about to fit up some Knard 3.8" to Darryls. We'll see if they are, as Surly claim, a replacement for the Endo'.

    So, what's the verdict on replacements with a squarish profile? Knards? HuDus?

    Just changed to knards for the summer after Nates. Very fast rolling, good on trail, sand and roads. Slight tram lining at some points but very occasional.

    They were OK in the sand...that's about it.....

    That being said, my HUDU's are no worse in the sand, and better on 100% of any other surfaces.....so no crying here.
