    European Fat Road Tyre option :)

    Just came across this on Classic Bicycle Parts site :-

    Classic Bicycle Parts | Tire 3G BOA-G Semislick 26 x 3.45, black | buy online

    Listed as being as being 86mm wide on an 80mm rim and 96mm wide on a 100mm rim.

    Might be worth a roll at < 50 euros/ tyre compared with 99 euros for 1 Black Floyd.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    When I purchased my 11th anniversary edition Surly 1x1 “1x1=11 Rat Ride”, it came shod with the Boa’s little brother— the 24"x3.45" “Hoggy-G” tire. Good to see they’ve finally come out with a 26" version.

    Good find!

    Their 100mm rims could also be an option for fat front?

    Awesome, was wondering when they would come out with a 26" version of their 3.45" tire.

    Looks like an interesting tread design, but I can't see me riding with a tire that says BOA-G in giant white letters.

    No problem. I can not see my riding on any bike unless I am reflected in a store window.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    these have been around the cruiser circuit for a while. it is reported by users that even though they claim 3.45" they are no wider than a 3" tire. as a matter of fact the company who makes them admits it.

    look at how it sits on the 100mm rim. the bead is way wider than the top of the tire.

    still i would rock the vanilla.
