    Maxxis Ardent 29 UST

    So I ordered some 29 UST tires back in March and I'm still waiting for them to arrive. The vendor I ordered them from states that they have spoke to Maxxis direct and they have no ETA on when they will receive them from their Chinese production facility. Not sure how much longer I can wait. Is anyone else having issues getting a Maxxis Ardent 29 UST tire?

    Same problem everywhere. I'm surprised a vendor would let you order a "not in stock" item. Not a good practice. Everywhere I've looked either doesn't list them, or if they do list 0 in stock. So your not alone.

    Dan, these are made in Taiwan, not China. I can check on the ETA for the next shipment as soon as I return to the office on Monday.

    Dan, I've been told we have plenty in our California warehouse. Also it looks like Hawley has some in stock, so if your LBS can order through them that might be the best route.
