    Did you weigh ‘em with or without air?

    Thank you, this helpful information! Hi from russian fatbikers :)

    Origin8 Devist8er really do feel that much heavier that the others having ridden them now for a few days. I didn’t think I would notice so much but I do. They are still very nice.

    tread is lead, as in the metal. Lose rotating mass with alloy nipples, thin tubes and a 1/2 drill bit. Or ride a road bike.

    Kevlar bead vs Wire Bead on the Surlys???

  7. Sven Haamer February 6, 2012 at 8:31 pm #

    Haven’t seen Kevlar beaded Surly tires in the wild yet. Don’t expect much in the way of weight savings though. As soon as they are available we’ll update the list.

    • Fattie Lumpkin February 7, 2012 at 10:33 pm #

      We have had pairs of the folding bead ones in the shop. Weights were basically the same or at least in the realm given the typical variances.

    Dang, I had a pair of 26X 4.0 Innova Spiders and didn’t weigh them. I gave them to Karen, maybe she could weigh them and report.
    Internet searches lists them at 1350 grams, But they felt much heavier.

    • Supermastic March 5, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

      i have a pair of Spider too and : 1375g each.

    Hi, from Spain.
    I know a little more about weight but, would you please help me with measures?.
    I am thinking in fitting a pair of 26 Mavic Crossmark with Surly 3.0 Knard tires in an On One Inbred 29.
    Has anyone this tires and measure the wideth in a normal 26 rim?
    Thanks and Cheers.

    This needs an update. 60tpi Nate gum walls ( surly lists kevlar bead while others list wire bead?) New Fatback Sterling, actual production Snowshoes, New Dillinger Studded vs. Non… etc.

    Some has to own some of these and could share.
