    Looking for tires for Salsa Timberjack 24"


    My 8 year old is getting close to burning through the stock tires on his Timberjack 24; alot of miles on them this summer.

    He's done a few XC races this summer and I was considering going to something narrower and tubeless at the same time.

    We were at a race yesterday and another kid there with the same bike was running the 24x2.8 Vee Crown Gems. His father and I compared them side by stock with the stock 24x3.0 Cheng Shin tires and they were basically the same width. The Crown Gems are KNOBBY.

    I see on the Vee website they list 24x2.6 in black and skinwalls. I see the skinwall on Commencals website but can't find the blackwalls.

    Anyone know where I can get them? Maybe a different tire?

    Are they not in stock on the Vee tire website? I ordered a set of crown gems for my daughter's bike awhile ago online from Vee. Amazing price (if you ignore the shipping charge).

    No, they only have the 2.8s listed in their webshop. I just called my local dealer since Vee lists QBP as a distributor. He looked up the tires and QBP carries the 2.8s and the 2.25s but no 2.6 width.

    Edit, sorry misread that you were looking for the 2.8's. If they're nobby enough the kenda slant 6's would probably be a good substitution. They offer a pretty good mix of tread and they aren't stupidly heavy like some of the 24++ stuff.
