    Maxxis Torch 29er, anybody using them?

    I am thinking about a set of Maxxis Torch 29 x 2 set up tubless for town riding and commuting on my F29 C3. Just wondering if any one has any experience with them?

    I just started using some on mine over the last week. They look good, have good grip on pavement, and don't make much noise. Reminds me of my bmx days as a kid, and it makes riding on pavement fun again.

    I guess if I had to come up with something to complain about, it would be that the tread has tight little gaps that hold dirt and grime pretty well which might be a concern if you take your bike in an office building when you commute. Not really an issue for me, though.

    Hard to give a good review this early into ownership, though. And I'm not running tubeless.

    They were brand new in this photo

    I've been running them tubeless on Crest rims. They have been holding air extremely well. Wear and durability has been great so far for me.
