    That weight on the bulldozer is impressive! My H-billie was only 70gr lighter! Casing must be pretty thin on that thing.

    Their "Speedster" tires are infinitely superior to QBP's Black Floyds in terms of flat protection and they roll great and are so much cheaper to boot.

    Wonder how the H-Billie and Bulldozer compare to the Vee 8? I'm looking for a bigger tire with less rolling resistance for rail trails etc.

    Re: Vee Rubber

    Vee have really redeemed themselves after their rough start in fatbike tires (Vee Mission) .Now they're really giving QBP a run for their money. Bulldozer looks like a legitimate trail fatbike tire.

    I wonder whats coming down the pipeline from Innova.

    Snowshoes have stud holes! Yay! Dear Santa, for Christmas I'd like to fly over ice and not fall and slam the ice with body parts. Bulldozer looks fast on dirt with shallower knobs and those center ramps especially for the front, maybe H-billie rear for more pedaling traction? Tincup I like the vee-8 a lot on the rear for railtrails But keep Larry on the front for the dirt and no self-steer.

    Yep, stud holes on the Snowshoe XL. I advised them to make holes in the outer row of knobs too, as that would increase ice traction for cornering and uneven ice like frozen tire ruts (and save a few additional grams).

    I got the pre studded prototype XLs just before Easter, but at that time, we still had snow, but no ice to test on, even up here in Norway.
    The side knobs are 7mm tall, so if required, a few Gripstud or Kold Kutter screw in studs can be mounted in without penetrating the casing.

    Got the protos for the Snowshoe XL in the new Lightweight version, approx. 1360g.
    These are 260mm bead to bead (like Bud/Lou).

    Got one ride on the H-billie on the front of my Jones before I had to head out of town. Started at 14.5 psi, (tubed) then steadily lowered it, when I got home it was at 10.0 psi, not any self steer that I could feel (unless I leaned it all the way over) but so far so good. (I'm a svelte 250lbs so my pressure needs to be a bit higher).

    I can't wait to try this thing out tubeless.

    (Rim is the new Origin 8 60mm rim, 700gr and $60)
