    Racing Ralph 650b

    So are these actually out? I have never seen one in stock anywhere. Anyone have an extra laying around?

    Probably somewhere else. Google will be your best friend.

    Looks like such a great tire.

    But $76 plus shipping is freaking ridiculous. I'm not a hater, just cheap.

    I guess I will have to keep riding my Neo for $50 with free shipping.

    Shiggy,
    Hit me up when you want to unload your "test" RR. I would be happy to pay shipping.

    Does any one have an actual measurement of the width of a Racing Ralph? I run the Quasi Moto 2.0 in the back of my Titus Eleven right now but was thinking of trying the Ralph. Can any one help with the measurement to see if it will fit.

    FWIW you might try and ask in the wheels forum, if anyone knows Shiggy does

    Does the tire set up well running tubeless?
    If you ever see a turtle on a telephone pole, remember he had help getting there. Is there anything beer can't do?

    I got the measurements and it looks like it should fit in the back just fine.

    Thanks for the help

    Yes, they set up tubeless just great. I used Specialized Roval tape (just like Stan's, only much less expensive) on my Velocity Blunts, 1 1/2 scoops of Stan's sealant and the Ralph's sealed up immediately. The sidewalls leaked for a few minutes (expected with such a light tire)

    I just ended up grabbing a pair of these. $130 shipped is expensive for two tires but I figured they'd be worth a shot to try out.
