So I took off my tubeless winter tires and put tubes and 2.4 Chunky Monkeys on my single-speed wheelset when I recently built up this Scandal.
It pained me to dump out the Stan's liquid from the beloved TLR tires I was removing from these wheels. But I had already experimented with a Chunky Monkey on the front of my Lurcher. And I knew how grippy, supple, rubbery and high-volume that tire is. I knew it would be worth the bother of running tubes on the Scandal because of this.
Then it occurred to me that, as On One/Planet X/Titus moves into new fields, I am following. And getting some great benefits as a result.
Tires, for instance.
This is a relatively new offering for On One (their own tire design/production). It took me a while to even consider the Smorgasbord or Chunky Monkey because of my commitment to tubeless tires. I tried the CM, though, and loved it. And where can you get such a nice 29x2.4 tire for $30?
Same for a carbon 29er frame and fork. And next might be a Fatty. And I haven't even begun to look at cross and serious road frames.
So thanks, On One/PX/Titus guys and girls for continuing to sketch out the next design and for figuring out ways to make it at a price us average Joes can afford.
Now how about a tubeless-ready version of that Chunky Monkey?
