    Wear difference for Larry and Endo?

    Hey Fatbike cognoscenti,

    Does anyone have an informed opinion on whether there's a notable difference between Larrys and Endomorphs in how fast they wear? Assume use as a rear tire and over all kinds of terrain, dirt, asphalt, gravel, etc.

    Thanks all.

    I don't know about an informed opinion but considering the life I have left on my front Larry, compared to my front Endo at this time last year; I'll be going Larry's all around when it's time for new rubber.
    The Endo I have on the rear right now is a little ahead (as far a tread left), where last years was at this time. I made a mistake by not going Larry's all around this past Jan. A mistake I'll not make again!!

    Peace

    I'm holding out for a Black Floyd (hopefully in the next few months).

    I don't think my Larrys have been on a hard enough surface to experience any wear yet.
    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    I checked the thread on the Black Floyd, but I'm not seeing it listed in a post with the link. Everytime I google it, I end up on the same thread here in the fat bike forum.
    What's the tread like? Similar to Larry, or much different?

    Peace

    Check the front tire of the Moonlander pic on the Surly blog. That's the suspected Floyd tire.
