    2008 Racing Ralph Evo 2.1 weight and size

    Just picked up 2 Racing Ralphs, they came in at 464 and 467gms, listed weight on box is 470gms

    Size wise they are a lot smaller than the old Ralph. The new tire on Mavic XC 717disc is around 45.5 mm around the carcass (30psi with tube) where as my old Ralph was 49mm (30psi Stans). I hope to get the new tires mounted up with Stans next week and give them a try.

    If my inference is as good as anybody else's here. Basing from Evo's bead, that is, where you could see those small vertical lines--> I could say, standard ones... Feel free of correcting me though...

    But that looks promising! Since I would like to bring back the fondest memories of the ride wherein I don't have to worry that my front would 'wash out' over those loose corners. FWIW, thread pattern closely resembles Nevegals, right? Please give us some feedbacks from conversion, installation to ride...

    TIA!

    Well, I must consider myself lucky...
    Non tubeless, 2.1 EVO, using it with DT tubelesskit, Stan's sealant, 2 months now without any problem rear mounted. I might consider using it front (instead of the Nobby) with the old RR on the rear, as it haves more lateral grip than the oldies.

    Tubless tires are too heavy!

    Lucky dawg!

    Again Schwable tire weights are all over the place.

    I wasn't able to select from a batch, but previous experience with Nobby Nics and old Ralphs suggests that theres some nice light ones out there :-)

    26 x 2.0 I haven't mounted them on the wheel, so I can't give other measurements.
    I got them direct from Mex Schwalbe dealer, who brought them from Eurobike, they are still not available down here.

    What is the specific problem with the fit? Too tight, too loose, bead lock issues, or something else?

    Too loose, maybe using rimstrip... I tried before with dt 4.2 rim and eclipse kit and fitted, but suddenly exploded while I was riding.

    407g !

    i just got to pick out the lightest samples out of 40 tires of each size:

    Racing Ralph 2,1": 407g + 414g
    Racing Ralph 2,25": 510g

    i also measured 2,1" Nobby Nics but none was under 500g. all around 515-535g! definitely not a tire i would want on my bike. i then would prefer the Nokian NBX which i also think has some overweight at around 500g lately but at least it is fast rolling...the 2,25 Nobby Nics were around 570 ++ so i didn't even care to look for a light one.
