|I Like The BFL, but what about....??|
I really like the BFL. However; I like it so much I've pretty much burned up my rear tire on The Snow Dog. Yes- I'll probably get another, but then there is By-Tor the Titanium Mukluk, and it has the old, original 27tpi Larry 3.8"ers on it. That's the bike that desperately needs the upgrade here, but that's where these choices start to get my brain foggy.
The titanium Mukluk has some odd rims too. I have the original Fatback Uma II's which are 70mm wide. My inclination is to go with some 45NRTH tires, but I also hear that guys are liking a Nate rear/BFL front combo. Oh....yeah, did I mention that 45NRTH has not only the Husker Du, but the Escalator tires as well?
And some of you non-fat bikers may be wondering, what is the big deal? Just get some tires! Well, at the prices these things command, you do pause to consider your choices a bit longer than you might for a 29"er.
So, does anyone want to recommend me a combination? These will likely be kept off road only, so no gravel, commuting, etc.
Otherwise I may end up in non-decision mode and stick with my old Larrys. Which wouldn't be the worst thing that's ever happened!
