    Crazy Good Deal on 27 tpi Surly tires! Only 70 bucks!

    Hey Everyone,

    Found a site that is having a sale on the 27tpi Surly tires. Figured i would pass it on.

    Surly Nate

    This one is for the Nates, but from there, you will be able to find the rest. Knards, Floyds, etc.

    Enjoy

    Be careful with upgrade cycles- they took my order for wheels (had a crazy good price) and then never shipped them... never even had them in stock... eventually had to do a transaction dispute with my credit card.

    If you don't mind not seeing your 70 bucks again, go for it but I wouldn't trust them.

    On-One Floater tires will be available soon for about the same price. And they'll be 120 tpi with folding beads. You can pre-order on their UK website, and I got an email from them that shipping (including international) is free above 60 GBP (about $90). I haven't seen them on the US site yet.

    Good feedback. Both Jenson and Treefort bikes will price match so that will take the risk out of it

    If you are sure you want 27tpi tires go for it, but they are stiff and heavy. I'd pay double not to ride them myself!
    Safe riding,

    I have only ever ridden the 27 tpi tires and to be honest, they have treated me well. I am sure there is a difference, but paying double? I don't know about that...

    Tires are the easiest and cheapest way to improve the performance of your bike. For $50 there is no doubt in my mind you should upgrade.

    Ive never had a problem with upgrade cycles. They drop ship right from QBP and don't stock items, so they just dont mark things up as much.

    Points;

    - I too have had good luck - so far - with Upgrade Cycles. Like Duggus said...

    My experience is with 120 HuDus and 27 Nates;

    - I don't think you would really feel a difference in snow between 27 & 120. At least in powder.

    - You will DEEEEEEFinitely feel a difference in the dry!!!!!

    - If you ride a lot of sharp-rock stuff, 120s can feel kind of... vulnerable.

    - If you ride round slick rock & root stuff, 27s can feel stiff and clunky.
    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

    Check the used gear forum, I believe there are a bunch of good fat tires for sale. I have two fat tires for sale, one is a Larry 27 tpi that I'd let go for less than your "special deal", take a look at my ad and give me a hollar.

    There's nothing wrong with riding a 27tpi tire, heavy rides better, which is why I ride a Devist8or
