    Racing Ralphs for Trade

    I have some brand new in the box Schwalbe Racing Ralphs TL-Ready that I'd like to trade for some brand new Quasi's.

    Simply put, I'm a Quasi fan. I bought these thinking I would try them, but I think I'd rather stick with the Quasi's.

    (I would sell them also........shameful I know)

    I was looking at the RR but ended up ordering a Quasi yesterday from OO (and shamefully a 2.35 Nev too since they were out of the big Neo.....).

    Rex have you had a chance to mount the RR's to see how they differ in size to the Quasi?

    thanks in advance
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....

    I haven't mounted them up. In fact I haven't taken them out of the box. It was an impulse purchase, but the Quasi's have never failed me so I figure "if it ain't broke." I do have friends on the 29'er version of the RR and love'em.

    Good intermediate tread tire. I had a sidewall failure a couple weeks ago but had a couple years of riding on them. 2" tear at the bead.

    I had this tire as well and never mounted it. It just seemed like a "cheap" tire. The bead seemed so weak and small, and the sidewalls were paper thin. I have a buddy who got the same first impressions. We both sold ours. It could be a great tire, but it didn't pass my sniff test. If I didn't have so many rocks in my area I MIGHT reconsider them.

    A few years of riding on yours isn't bad though.

    Took off awhile ago because of winter conditions! Winter Hah! Tempted to throw it back on front but then it would start raing again .

    I will be a Quasi in back guy sometime midweek as soon as Mr Brown brings me a package.

    jrm, I know you had the 2.35 Nev up front at one point, ever have the big NeoMoto?

    What tires are you and jw-13 reffering too? The RR's you're looking to trade, Nevegals, or the Wolverines. Sorry I'm fading from a nice long ride today hampered by a stiff back and a couple brews.
