    Mutano Raptor Race 2.4

    anyone have any idea where i can get these the cheapest? i've tried ebay but they're still fairly pricey on there. they're selling a lot of 2.24 versions cheap tho.

    thanks in advance,

    jon

    I picked up the 2.24 on e-bay ($16.95 for two).

    Read the reviews on them... many like the 2.24 version better for some reason or another. Also, keep in mind, the 2.24 is actually wider than the 2.4

    I prefer the 2.24's over the 2.4. The tread on the 2.24 seems more aggro which I prefer though on hardpack the 2.4 might be a better ride. As far as weights go, I'm told the 2.24 is actually heavier than the 2.4's.

    well i reading the reviews just made me more confused. i'm actually leaning more towards the 2.24's now only because they're cheaper. they sell the 2.4's at pricepoint but i'd have to buy em in a pair to get em for 25 a piece (i'm only looking for the front) and on top of that i have to pay both tax and shipping. i don't think jenson sells the race version but i'll ask. i ride mostly hardpack and places where there are lots of rain ruts. what is the difference in rolling resistance between the 2.24 and 2.4? if it's a hairline difference then i might as well go with the 2.24. i'm currently using a velociraptor for the front...will i notice a huge change in traction?

    Believe it or not, the 2.24 is actually wider than the 2.4.

    Check Greenfish's ebay store:

    http://stores.ebay.com/Greenfish-Adventure-Sports

    They have a pair of 2.24s for $34.95

    Also, keep an eye out for biketony007's store on ebay as well:

    http://stores.ebay.com/BikeTony007s-Bike-World

    That's where I got a pair for $16.95 (+$10 shipping)

    Greenfish is good too, I've ordered from them before. If you don't want to hassle with winning an auction, I'd call Greenfish, tell them you saw their tires on ebay, and they'll probably sell you the pair for $34.95 (their min bid).
