    ardent 27.5x 2.4 exo(non 3c) anyone???

    Bought this tire to replace an ardent 2.25 on the rear. But it rubs the crossbar on my rear triangle. The kind folks at __________ informed me that my bike is 27.5 but only certain 27.5 tires will fit hmmmmmmmm. If anything I would think 2.4 on the rear would be too wide but not here. They said HRII in 2.3 should work Which I can't find locally. Just replaced an ardent front with a HRII great front tire. Not so sure about on the rear. With that being said I won't put an ardent back on the front. So if anyone is needing a 27.5x2.4 tire I will be relinquishing one. It has one ride at SoMo on it. They said I could return it if it didn't fit. I doubt I can now that it's all dirty.

    Any feedback on the HRII as a rear tire? Not looking to break land speed records I know it's not as fast rolling as ardent, but ardent doesn't fit. I don't want to experiment finding/buying tires that don't fit.
    I think the manufacturer should disclose " 27.5 bike doesn't fit 27.5 tires."

    So if anyone is interested/needs a 27.5x2.4 tire let me know I'm sure we can work something out no sense in wasting a good tire.

    On a positive note it climbed well great grip and made the bike sound like a motorcycle like when I was a kid and use to stick stuff in the tire to sound cool.

    I'm pretty sure Rage has HRII in 2.3
    I have 2.4 on front and 2.3 on rear for my Kona. I have been pretty happy with them.

    I have a set of schawlbe hans dempf 27.5 x 2.35 for sale. Asking $80 for the pair. I'll even let you Mount them to make sure they fit. They have 5 rides at Somo on them.
