    How are these as a rear tire? I am interested in putting one on the rear of my Sultan that is a little lighter and faster than the nobby nic there now.

    Thanks, John

    ralphs on the rear work good for me for their intended use (not mud) at lowish pressure. my experience is you need a wide rim though for the 2.4s if you wanna run really low pressure or they are gonna feel a little squirmy due to their flexy sidewalls.

    they seem like they roll better than nics on my other bike but you give up some traction.

    I haven't run the Ralph, but I have experience with the Nic and the Rocket Ron. I think the Nobby Nic is a better fit for me, and I am happy with it. Both the Ron and Nic are light and have good grip (both front and rear, have only run them in pairs), with the Nic being far more predictable in corners. I do like the Schwalbe tires, and will probably try the Ralph sometime in the future.

    Racing Ralph 29x2.4

    Anybody know the weight of this one? It doesn't appear anywhere. Would it be too tight for Stan's?

    they are around 600g and you'll have to put some struggle to fit on stan's. (Crest in my case)

    I'm running these on my 29er Crests and the go on just fine. I did have to use one lever, but it was very little effort, especially compared to the Small Block 8. I managed to finally get that one on with two heavy levers, but really have no clue if I can get it off and back on while out on the trail. Hopefully I won't have to find out and will manage to get a deal on a 2.25 Ralph soon enough. Highly recommend the RR for a rigid setup, especially at these prices. I thought they were a deal at the $50 I got mine for.

    Thanks a lot! I wanted them for a rigid single speed. I also had a bit of a time mounting up the SB8, it has floppy sidewalls that seem to make everything harder.
