    Terrene cake eater 29 x 2.8 experience

    Wanting a little more knob on my 29+ wheels I am using with my fat bike. Anyone have any time on Terrene cake eater 29 x 2.8s? If yes, tell me your cake eater story.

    You said you wanted more knob. Compared to what?

    I've got a set of Cake Eater's that I've put a few hundred miles on.

    Compared to Bontrager XR2 29 x 3.0.

    OK.

    Cake Eater's on 35mm (internal) rims measure out to 2.6" at reasonable riding pressures. I wanted them to be bigger. They aren't.

    Cake Eater's have much better grip pretty much everywhere. They roll fairly slow. Because they are so small you have to run substantially higher pressure than you do on the XR2's. This makes them feel fairly harsh.

    Thanks for the info. Was hoping they would be closer to 2.8. My spanks are 35mm (internal) as well.

    How is the Cake Eater in snow? My 2.3" Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pros work great on ice and in powder but not on packed or wet snow. 3.0" tyres do not fit my bike and this seems to be the only 27.5x2.8" spiked tyre on the market.
