    Nice. Before they had them listed at $34.99 and sold 9 tires before the auction ended. And I missed out on that one. I was stoked to see them relist for 10 bucks cheaper a tire!

    Whats the big difference between the 120tpi and the 60tpi? I thought 120 was supposed to be lighter, but the 60tpi is listed as lighter.

    The 120 tpi is the eXC/LUST/UST specific, meaning tubeless ready.

    The ebay listing has them listed as 120 tpi but I'm going to say that's wrong and these are the regular single compound folding 60 tpi versions, claimed weight of 755.

    The 120 tpi UST tires clearly come in a different packaging as well, seen here.

    Thanks. I want to jump on this deal, but definitely want the 60tpi version. Sent the seller a msg to find out which one it actually is. Hopefully it's not too late by the time I hear back.

    These are in fact 120 tpi. Found out for sure after I ordered. I don't want it, I'd rather have 60tpi. If anyone wants it, pm me.

    I'll be certain when I'll get them in. I wouldn't hold their word to it, they list thousands of items on eBay.

    Here is a link from Maxxis in regards to the Ardent specs.

    Ardent

    Based on the listed weights on their page it looks to me like the tires from The Pros Closet are in fact 60TPI even though they listed them as 120TPI.

    Talk about quick shipping. The tires arrived today. And they look like the regular 60 tpi 29x2.25 Ardents.

    And I pm'd a Maxxis employee on here who I had the pleasure of buying a fork from recently and he confirmed of what I was saying from the get go.

    The only 120 tpi Ardent is the tubeless-ready, which is a dual ply compound, heavier as well, along with UST logos on the sidewall.

    What he said, "Bart, you've done your homework. We have never produced a 120 tpi Ardent except for the LUST versions, so I'm confident this is a mistake."

    The UPC barcode on the packaging is a new sticker over the old UPC barcode (which is part number for 26x2.5 Ardents), and the part number on the new sticker is TB96712500 (29x2.5 Ardent 60 tpi). The only mistake is the sticker lists 120 tpi. Such a tire, non-tubeless doesn't exist.

    To those that ordered, we got a great deal. Should have bought more.

    Thanks for the follow up. I wasn't worried, but confirmation is always good.

    Sweet I got my wheelset(Charger Expert- $230 shipped), and my tires(also ordered a Crossmark when I got the Ardent) through deals you found. Thanks
