    Shiggy: Any idea on weight of the Bulldog Light UST Tubeless 2.1?

    I am getting ready to order from Italy and wanted to know if you possibly knew the weight on these?

    I was hoping they would replace the Mosquito! It's one of my favorite tires for riding down here and now will pair up nice with the Python Tubelesss Light

    Thanks!

    I think you will like the Bulldog. I shipped my catalogs and notes home from IB and they have not arrived yet so I do not know the weight. I hope to have the tires in my hands in a month or so.

    Have you checked out my site redesign yet? The look it up and I have a database guy onboard so the function should be improved soon, too.

    The new site look nice!

    I am going to get a link on light-bikes.com to get people in the right direction when it comes to tire weights and sizes. When your t-shirts are ready I want one!!

    Two of the pro riders I wrench for are sponsored by Hutchinson. They have been running both the new version of the Python Tubeless Light and the Bulldog Tubeless Light all year long. The Bulldog Tubeless Light tires were only about 10g heavier than the Pythons in our case. They have loved using the Bulldogs, and Charlie has been running a Bulldog on the front and a Python on the rear over the past few months after being impressed with their performance when he raced Marathon Worlds in Europe.

    Who Sells The Bulldogs

    Is anyone selling the Bulldogs now? Can I get them off the internet or LBS?

    New question here. switching ust spiders 2.1

    Shiggy, I just thought Id pop by and ask your advice on switching ust spiders 2.1 to something similar in the "all round mud and wet" dept but with more pinch flat and snake bite resistance without adding too much weight. Any advice appreciated.

    Maybe the Michelin XL tubeless. It has been renamed XCR Mud for '05.
    BTW Michelin has dropped the "Wildgripper" label (thankfully) and renamed all of their tires.

    639g

    This French website weighed them and they came out at 639 grams! That's insanely light for a big UST - looks like a winner. Can't wait to give'em a go!

    Are the Bulldog 2.1 that big? I'll probably give these a try next season but was wondering if I'd go with the 2.1 or 2.3...

    Thanks Shiggy, maybe my question should have been about the Maxxis High-Roller UST 2.35. Anyone knows how are these compared with the Hutchinsons width-wise? I'm not familiar with them and my new bike comes with them but I plan to switch them before I leave the shop. They seem like good for cornering, good for braking but look like poor climbers (and I do lots of climbing), they're supposedly very heavy and the 42a durometer will last 2 days...

    If the Maxxis Hansventure 2.35 is the same width as their other 2.35s they are no bigger than a Hutchinson 2.0/2.1.
    Specs are on my Tire Site

    Hutchinson Bulldog...

    Shiggy you may be able to answer my questions...

    Will or are there plans for Huchinson to release a a 2.0"/2.1" Bulldog Airlight, simular to the other Airlight models?

    At the Bicycle Australia Show on the weekend, I noticed the tyres on a few bikes, and most notably on Josh Fleming's Felt XC race rig, Bulldog Tubeless Lite on the rear, Python Tubeless Lite on the front- it really does look like a good combo for the riding around here.

    Thanx

    I've been ridding this tires since april.

    I don't remember exactly the weight, and by the way they are prototype versions, but they were in the same range as python. I would say a bit less than 700g.

    I prefer them in the rear, with a spider in front.

    About the casing, i would say that it's the same as others.

    But the knobs do not extand on the side, so they look smaller tahn python, and even smaller than spider.

    Bulldog availability...

    Hutchinson's canadian distributor told me today the Bulldogs would be in their warehouse late december or early january... in Canada. Don,t know about the US but it can't be later than that as we almost always get products later up here.

    Hi Dirt-Boy,
    sorry I haven't seen your message before.

    I have 2 Bulldog UST, exact weights are 695 and 697gr.

    I also rode the bulldog airlight non UST all summer, and they're great tires too.

    If you need the pictures I can upload them for you.

    I actually saw...

    The Bulldog on a few bikes in a store today... I looks a good tyre, but the version I say must have been 1.8/ 1.9" version, because it looked mighty small in comparison to the bulldog I saw on Mr Flemmings bike at the bike show a few weeks ago...

    Still think it looks better on the rear as opposed to the front.

    Just got two UST 2.1 Bulldogs in the mail...

    ...and they weighed 665 and 675 grams. They also measured out at 1.8 inches, much narrower than I thought. It says 2.1 on the tire. Haven't ridden them yet.
