    tire for Barry Roubaix

    so, I am a bit of a newb to the fatbike game. I just switched my entry from open 62, fatbike. looking for a lighter, fast rolling tire that will measure 3.7 on an 80mm mulefut rim, that is on my blizzard. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the frenzy. I have done the BR three times on a fat bike. The best tire will depend on the conditions- if it is hard and dry, a Larry front, Black Floyd rear will be great, but soft or slick will require more tread. I used Knards last year, and they worked fine- 12 PSI makes them rock-hard. Something like a HuDu, Knard or Larry will be fine- there is no need for a huge, gnarly tire for the BR.

    I will be doing the BR for the first time and will be using my Fatbike with 4.8 Ground Controls. I will adjust the psi according to conditions.

    Barry requires a tire size that is 3.7 or more to be "Fat". It doesn't matter what rim you run as long as the tire's published size (on sidewall) is at least 3.7inches.
