    Any 27.5" gumwall fat tires?

    I have a 2018 Trek Farley EX 9.8 with need for new tires soon. Right now it has the OEM Bontrager Hodag 27.5", 3.8" tires. I was hoping to replace them with some gumwall version in that range but don't see them advertised anywhere.

    Most folks know them as having tan sidewalls.

    Here's a few bikes of my bikes with them. Black Floyds on my Fatty and Maxxis Ardents on my Sawyer and Schwinn Tempo.

    ah, never heard tan sidewall referred to as a "gum".

    every link within that link has a different definition of "gum" wall...

    basically, it seems that "gum" wall tires are lower TPI, especially in the fat world, so they are not common. I have only seen Surly 27tpi or 60tpi floyds/nates.
