    Why not just do a 3.8 Knard?

    I alread have 3.8's. Surly Nate's that I love. I want something a little smaller/faster. Be my "race" tires in case I feel like dorking it up at some race with those who actually care what place they come in. =)

    this^^^^^^^^^^^^the 3.8's are lighter, fast, and have great grip, imo.

    with the 3's you might be pedal striking like a mofo.

    but with rabbit hole 26's.........

    Speedsters/Captiv8ters? Despite labeled size as 3.5, they are pretty much like most 3.7 tyres in size with knobs shaved off, and have fine tread pattern that will grip anywhere but very slick and loose conditions.

    They roll extremely well, but you'll have to pump'em up quite good to avoid self-steer (fat 'slicks' are notorious for that).

    I've run 2.4s on Marges. No problem.

    Hmmmm
    I think if I was gonna go with rabbit holes on a pug I'd use the 29+ ones
    I have 24" large marge's and 3" tires on my 1x1 and it lowers the bike a little compared to regular 26" rims and tires
    26+ rabbit holes and 3" Knards look just about perfect for a 1x1
    It's all about the firecuts

    I didn't think it was either
    I thought it was for a pug or fat bike
    Marges and 3.0 Knards look like they fit great on the 1x1 as well
