    Smaller casing tire than a 2.0 quasi moto?

    My Maverick Reposado just fits a 2.0 quasi moto on a Blunt rim. but it's tight - definately dry weather riding at best - is the a 650 mtb tire that has a smaller casing?
    Thanks, Adam.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The IRD Fire XC Pro probably has the smallest casing available at 49mm.

    This is good stuff to know for my Carver 96er to 650b project! Looks like I have several rear tire options that will work well and still provide decent clearance in the back of my frame:

    Quasi-Moto
    Nevegal
    Fire XC Pro
    Maybe the Neomoto 2.1 too - Kirk??

    The 2.1" Neo-Moto should work just fine.

    We still have plans to do the Mini-Moto™ but other projects are taking priority right now. The Pari-Moto 650x38b road tire is nearing completion, and then we'll start on the Mini-Moto in early / mid 2010.

    When do you think the Pari-Moto will begin shipping? I'm looking for a winter training tire to use on the road. Also what's a Mini-Moto?

    I thought this was a mountainbike site. This is outrageous. Oh the humanity!

    If all goes according to plan the Pari-Moto will be shipping sometime in late January / early February.

    The Mini-Moto will be a small 38-43mm wide shallow knobby tire for light off road use with rando / touring type bikes. Of course it would work on any bike that will fit them...

    TNC,

    Would it make you feel any better to know I have some soft compound Neo-Moto samples arriving soon?

    Why, yes it would!

    When you say 'arrive' is that for testing or for retail sale?

    OR...how do I sign up to be a test rider?

    You would be happy to abuse it on the wet rocks and roots of eastern PA for you, in the name of science.

    Re: The softer compound tires, more info to come, probably in a different thread.
