    Mukluks with Hookworms pictures?

    Lots of pics of Pugs and Fatbacks, any good pics of Muks with hookworms or any tire at all? Just got my Surly Open bars dialed in, thinking of trying Hookworms for the summer...

    Lets see them!

    Dang, was planning on loading some pics to start with but the ol iPad isn't cooperating!

    I was thinking of trying them too, but I think I'll stay with the Larrys. There's a thread "Mukluk Street Fighter Style" with some pics from a couple weeks ago...I tried to post the link, but I don't have enough post's yet.

    Wonder why no one considers the spider tires for street, keeps everything nice and fat:

    Does the Spider roll that much better than an Endo?

    From the side it looks like the Endo would roll better.

    Johnclimber has done a long road ride (90 miles?) on his Larrys, might be worth asking his opinion.

    The little road use I have given mine makes me think there's no need to use a different tyre for road use - unless you're worried about wearing out the Larry. Once up to speed, they truck along nicely.

    I've put in a mixed paved bike trail/road ride of a similar length on my Mukluk. I ran the Larry's at 30 PSI and they rolled along very well. There's not a lot of tire contacting the pavement (the innermost 3 lines of tread blocks) at that pressure. I haven't noted a lot of wear on the Larry's so far, and I've ridden them mostly on pavement rather than dirt/gravel thus far.

    I was kind of thinking of saving the Larrys but if you think the wear is negligable I might not worry about it too much, but then again I would like to see how it goes with that type of tire. 30 pounds huh? I have only gone to 20 on mine... Might have to try that too!

    The Spiders do look good but weigh just about the same I think as the Larrys and the Hookworms are only $37.00 each, actually saw them on sale a while back for $32.00... With a daughter in need of a car I might have to go with the Hookworms! lol...

    I don't think I could bear to runing my fattie with skinnies. I have plenty of other bikes, my fattie's staying fluffly, larrys front/rear for 3 seasons, endo in the back for winter.

    We the people ... Was posted a while back..

    Here's the thread with pics.

    Know a friend who did this with his Fatback, he said it rode great on the road, but it gives you less BB clearance, so he would hit peddles a bit off road.




    Hmm URL, seems to not show up:

    I might give these tires a try. I'm going to ride the Mukluk on my 12 mile commute through Los Angeles and see how it goes.

    Sorry I've only just seen this, my 90 miler was 85% off road most of this was on fire road style trails and there was no real drag.

    I recently do the Liverpool, Chester, Liverpool bike ride where I blew the pressure up to 20psi and ler rip over taking loads of roadies and only a dozen got past and away from me.

    Here's a shot from my GoPro fixed to the frame overtaking a roadie, note he's in the big ring up front
    I averaged 17mph all route

    I set the #4 fastest time running a Larry front and rear on my Pugsley on a downhill paved section of road where primarily roadies ride:
