    Interesting indeed! I've been waiting for that size to appear, hopefully more will follow.

    I'd be on those like a puppy on a pork chop. Curious to hear more details.

    With a full suspension that has enough clearance to run a 29x2.8, a desire to always ride the biggest tire that fits, and no 29x2.8 on the market... this makes me moist.

    Now this makes me want to build up a set of 29+ wheels for my fat bike.

    Thinking this could make a good rear tire.
    I wonder how tough "tough" is.

    Oh be nice if this fits on my 29r Stumpjumper. Love the 27.5+ tire but 29 rim even better.

    What year Stumpy do you have? I have a 2017 and the Nobby Nic 29 x 2.60 fits with plenty of space.

    Purchased it 3 weeks ago brand new. So should be 2017 model. I thought you could only get that tire in 2.50.
    If I can get 2.60 would be great.

    The Nobby Nic comes in 29 x 2.25, 2.35 and 2.60. The 2.60 isn't that much bigger than the 2.35 but it is a bit. There's a whole long thread on it here: http://forums.mtbr.com/26-27-5-29-pl...a-1020942.html.

    Schwalbe have just revised their compounds so the NN will only be available in one compound in the future (currently there are two compounds available). I ordered my from Bike24 in Germany - took a couple of weeks to arrive. TrailStar for the front, PaceStar for the rear: https://www.bike24.com/1.php?content...1000,2,103,212

    I just put a 2.5 DHF on a 35mm internal width wheel on the back of my '16 stumpy. The outside of the tread blocks measured 2.53x and it looks like I've got a little more wiggle room.


    It's a damn shame all these 2.6-2.8 tires are coming out on July, I've got my trip to Moab planned for July.

    saw these in the flesh at Sea Otter, Tim said they are more focused on bikepacking with lower knob height than the Chunk tire. He said should be available to buy in July of this year.
    Hoping to get a set for my new Meriwether which should be finished in late June.

    My 2.6 Nobby Nics were 2.58 / 2.63 at the sidewalls on i35s last I checked. It's basically a true 2.6, although unfortunately the tread is a bit less. And I think that's the general consensus on the thread.

    Anyway, I am enjoying my 2.6s, but am up for a 2.8. Just can't believe we still can't buy one.

    Given that 3.0's fit just fine I think you might be OK.

    Deep into July and still no McFly available yet on the Terrene website. Still waiting patiently.

    I just hope these are close to spec'ed weight when they finally show up. My 27.5 Chunk was >150g heavier than spec.

    Same here, trying to wait patiently. I've almost pulled the trigger on a 60 TPI Dirt Wizard a couple of times........ The weight difference is probably the only reason I haven't already.

    Also I emailed Tim asking for an ETA update last Tuesday....... still no reply.

    It's basically the end of the month now or in a few days. If they don't have a solid date now I am not holding out hope that they will have them by the end of the month. As soon as they are available I will be ordering at least two.

    I know nothing of Terrene as a tire manufacturer... Are they good and reliable? If this is a good company to buy from I am going to be on these suckers like white on rice. 29x2.8 is a niche that I've always longed for.

    Terrene tires are very nice. I run their Wazia's on my fatbike, and will get some Chunks for my plus bike soon. Good quality products, and really nice people that run it.

    Just ordered a McFly. It will go on a 36mm internal rim when it arrives. I will post up some numbers after I get it set up.

    Was your order a pre-order or a "real" order? If pre-order, did they mention an expected ship date? If normal order, where from? Thanks.

    Crossing fingers that these fit on a Fuel Ex with i29

    Should be fairly rounded with decent enough support and the volume might just fit with slightly less than perfect clearance. I rarely ever see mud on my bike so I don't need a huge amount of clearance.

    Unrelated to this thread my tire needs changed from at some point in the future to an immediate need. I had to cancel my order the other day, and go in a different direction. I got the refund notice today. Sounds like they are shipping now. I will likely end up with one or two of these in the future. Looking forward to hearing others thoughts.

    Fuel Ex 2018. Lots running 2.6 tires at the moment and claiming to have enough clearance to run bigger. I'll find out eventually if that's true.

    Yep, their website no longer shows pre-order. You can put it in your cart and check out, so looks like these are shipping.

    I have access to a QBP account, so can save substantial $$ if I wait until they get inventory there. Hopefully the wait will only be a few days.

    That is correct - they are in stock and shipping, and all pre-orders have shipped last week.

    We do not distribute through QBP. Any bike shop can order direct from Terrene, and we anticipate stock to be at our distributors BTI, Olympic and Downeast within the next 30 days.

    No, not yet. The UK is really hard because of the lack of price protection and controls, so its a bit of a landmine for smaller companies to step into until a bit more established.

    i have a chunk up front and a mcfly in the rear, 27.5x3" up front and 27.5x2.8 rear. i really like the mcfly as a rear tire. it doesnt have the grip compared to the chunk but i dont expect it to. the chunk doesnt roll as well as the mcfly. it still climbs quite well, corners better than expected, and of course rolls well. they both measure full width on appropriately sizes rims. the chunk measures slightly over 3" on an i45 and the mcfly measures slightly over 2.8" on an i45 rim. id use i40s but thats what i had. the mcfly is not squared off (knobs still stick out slightly more than the casing) on an i45 but that is deff the max rim width id use.

    really glad Terrene made both of these tires. theyre every bit a good as anything else on the market imo.

    Thanks for posting pics. Have you had a chance to ride these, and to re-measure after stretching?

    I've ridden the tire twice haven't remeasured yet. First impression is a nice rolling tire that feel faster than the Magic Mary. According to Strava about 5 secs quicker on a few DH segments but overall similar pace for the total ride. Running 12psi my weight is 155

    @kungchild, did you weigh them?

    I looked at a Chunk for my 27.5x3 bike, and it was >200g heavier than spec, so I passed. Makes me worry about potential weight of these.

    I've just had it confirmed that the 29x2.8's will fit inside a Pivot Switchblade frame so I think I'll be trying some of these pretty soon! Damn this rubber obsession I have!

    I talked to a Trek employee last night about my 2017 Fuel EX8 27.5+. He said that 29x3.0 tires fit, but not in the back. Didn't recommend mixing 2.6 and 3.0 tires for some reason.

    Looking at the clearance on my 2018 ex 9.8 and my rough estimate it looks like on these stock i29 it would be a fairly rounded profile but it should fit in the rear with a meager amount of mm clearance.

    Not sure if I want to try and make it work as I would be more comfortable with a tad bit more clearance or making it fit on say an i40. Of course like you mentioned it would clear the fork just fine and dandy.

    Maybe a good mate to a rear 2.6 NN? I am weird and don't ever like to mix and match tire sizes even if I know that it can and will produce favorable results.

    Anywho 1000000 Internet cool points to the first person to try these babies out on a 17 or 18 Fuel Ex and post the results! I'm always hungry to ride the biggest wheel that fits and a 29+ with 130mm front and rear suspension is kinda one of my wet dreams.

    I致e got the fat b nimble 29x3 which are about a 2.8 on my 17 ex8. Front has plenty of room. Rear just barely clears the drive side chainstay. These are on i35 rims.

    The Terrene 2.8 should be close!

    Would anyone be able to let me know the OD on these tires on a 29+ rim, from top of tread to top of tread after they're mounted on rims? Thinking about seeing if I can fit them on my Scott Spark 720 plus. Tried 3.0 chupacabras, the front fits, but the rear is about 1/4" too big, BUT, the chupa's are really big tires, with an OD around 31.25". I've got a trek stache as well so I'm seeing if I can do a wheel swap and use the bigger wheels in some situations if I want to.

    Here's how far I got with this experiment: https://imgur.com/a/BRPpJ

    Here are some images of a very unscientific approach at measuring a McFly and a Dirt Wizard(for comparison) on 36mm internal rims. I did have Chupacabras on this bike at one point, and they rubbed the chainstays frequently. The McFly never touches it.

    Just replaced my rear wtb ranger 3.0 with a Terrene McFly tough casing. Volume wise, a lot narrower, but that tire is so much faster and much better grip. Seemed fine at 15Lbs pressure which is only .5lbs than I run in the ranger. Initial impression is very favorable and I知 pretty impressed. My only comparisons are rocket Rons and WTB rangers and this tire seems so much better.

    I wish the Chunk was available in 29+ for the front. I知 probably going to run a Minion upfront. Currently have a Ranger on the front as well, but with the itty, bitty side lugs, it washes out way too easily.

    29 Duroc 40 with the McFly. 27 Duroc 50 with the Ranger. McFly diameter just slightly more than the WTB.

    Kenebeck up front, burly, fast, not too heavy. McFly out back is a nice fast tire, tough in the tough casing, mine is getting worn out, but still rides great.

    My light wheels are running Ikon 2.6 60tpi back and Rekon 2.6 60tpi up front.
