    Never used these tyres but for that price I’m chucking the chunk on the front and the smorg on the back – brilliant value IMO. Has anyone already got these fitted? Just waiting for them to arrive hopefully tomorrow.

    Now waits for peeps telling me they are shoite and I cudda got Nobby Nics cheaper somewhere.

    I love mine on my 29er, run tubeless. Very very grippy, Chunky Monkey is a bit draggy on the front though. I can’t be bothered swapping to anything faster until everything dries out a bit though.

    I have a Smorgasbord on the back. It doesn’t appear to have killed me yet, so it must be ok.

    Smorg on the back here and so far so good. They are a full 2.25 wide if that’s what you are looking for also.

    A tad on the heavy side though tbh, but still roll nicely.

    I think I weighed my Smorg & it was 950g, ridden on them once – plenty of grip/good volume.

    So far so good for me.

    Enjoying a monkey on the front… it’s definitely not a beaver or mud-x in the out and out mud (like we have at the moment) but for the rest of the time I can live with that.

    Good high volume winter tyre, grippy, tough, tubeless easy, heavy…

    Chunky monkey is better than smorgasbord in every dept

    Cheers – looking good then.
    It’s a bit of an experiment tbh – they are going on my pretty basic, heavy Merida matts 300 so I don’t think I’ll notice the weight – more interested in the grip.
    I have a Cube reaction pro on the way and will equip that with Nobby Nics once the original Ralphs and Rons wear out – just curious to know others experiences so ta very much.

    Chunky Monkey / Smorg combo has been on my Pitch all winter through snow, ice and mud.
    Grippy and predictable, doesn’t seem any heavier than the Minion /High Roller they replaced.
    I think I’ll get another pair for the hardtail which is taking shape in the shed 😉

    I have two smorgasbords (26inch) i was going to go front and back but i notice no one seems to be using them on the front any reason for this?
    I have also been trying to mount them to a 26inch mavic crossmax ust rim, tubeless but have been struggling them almost seem too loose on the rim. My irc mybro’s mount frist time every time but these i am really struggling with any suggestions?
    Cheers

    I’ve got the monkey on the front and smorg on the back

    Only had a few rides but they seem good, although the first few miles were a bit iffy

    Smorg is on back to front on the rear and even on mud they grip well. Circa 810g each as well so not too heavy

    I put a tube in and left them over night. removed one side and the tube. Used neat washing up liquid on the bead and POP using a track pump

    I don’t see any reason why you could’nt run them both? Only reasons I’ve got the Chunky up front is they are the same price but I wanted a 2.4 out front rather than a 2.25. Smorgs only come in a 2.25 width I believe.

    Anyone run a 26″ single 50a 2.4 Chunky Monkey on the back for more AM riding…maybe not as draggy as the dual ply but still capable? Off to the (maritime) Alps next week and wondered if it would compliment the usual Minion front
