    Bump for the big wheelers that have been out all day 😉

    New 2.35 on left, old 2.4 on right.
    New one holds less mud, for sure, & rolls better. My ideal tyre. Mine will be on year round now.

    taki – cant quite tell from the pic, but is there any difference in the knob to knob carcass width?

    I’ve got one of those but put a 2.25 NN on the front instead. Was that daft? Ralph any good when its not dry?

    It’s a rigid bike so I’m all in favour of a bit of cushion.

    Is it my eyes or is the new one bigger than the old one ?

    Great performance on the back for me (singlespeed and geared) – I also will be keeping mine on all year and putting a front on for the summer 😯

    New new ones have slightly tastier graphics IMHO and a big 29″ logo on the side (in case you forget)

    As best as I can measure in my freezing garage…

    W.K.W:
    (Widest knob width)
    2.4 = 60mm
    2.35 = 58mm

    Circumference:
    (Peice of string around tyre & rim at aforementioned W.K.W)
    2.4 = 220mm
    2.35 = 215mm

    Side knobs are noticbly smaller on the 2.35.
    If your after some squish for a fully rigid bike (like me) they are spot on at about 26psi.
    Rims are TN719’s.

    cheers.

    I get 61mm for the 2.4″ on my 35mm rims.

    so just a shade smaller then.

    Interesting subtle differences in tread patterns.
