    WTB Vulpine 29er discontinued?

    WTB no longer lists this tire on their website. They don't mention changes to their tire line up anywhere on their website, and I can find no info online. Is anyone aware of what's up here?

    If the Vulpine is indeed dead, I'll be very disappointed, it was an ideal rear tire for mixed riding (commuting, dirt roads, light trail). I don't see any other 29er semi-slicks out there as fast rolling as the Vulpine, does anyone have any recommendations?

    Wow, news to me. I just remounted mine and the roll oh so nice. To bad there's no cornering traction in the loose stuff. I miss my Tioga Semi Slicks....

    I have a set in solid condition I never used them since they did not fit my Fisty frame. If interested just send me a PM.

    WTB has changed their tire lineup immensely. Look at their online store. Search the net. You can get some goodeals on em and sock em away! I have had to do this with several of their tires.

    Yeah, as one of the first addopters/supporters of 29ers, they reduced the number of 29er tires this year by quite a bit.

    Kind of a bummer.

    WTB has made some very disappointing decisions. The discontinuation of the Timberwolf race, Exiwolf as well as the rest of the 2.5 race series tires has prompted me to move toward other brands. I have no desire to ever own 2 ply tires. It would defeat the purpose of my bike going to Jenny Craig!

    Very weird as I just bought the new Vulpine TCS (tubeless), and I like them!

    I am dying to get more Vulpine tires. Any good deals? I cannot find anything reasonable. )-:
