- It fits ….. Hurrah 29er+ Frontage
JRA use the industry nine tape I believe as it is wider than stans, or at least I think that is what John said he did with mine. certainly looks like a neat job and a perfect fit. Gorilla tape worked well as a bodge on my Rolling Darryl which is a different kettle of fish entirely. It may be down to the tyre rather than your tape? My specialized purgatorys were terrible for burping on both flows and p35s. Is it a decent size bit of rubber?Posted 3 years ago
I’m afraid nothing too interesting but thought it worth a mention.
I received yesterday a lovely 29er+ wheel* and tyre from the good people at Just Riding Along (Thank you John et al)
The wheel was bought for the front of my Fortitude running Salsa Cromoto forks.
I should have fitted based on some loose measuring but I can confirm it does fit with reasonable room so spare – Hurrah!
That is all.

So those of you who went for Duallys over Rabbit Holes, what swung it?
Purely for aesthetic reasons as I thought the Dually’s looked much nicer with out any cut outs.
I also previously had P35’s made by Velocity and the finish was really nice; so thought I’d stick with the same company.
Glad I did go with the Dually’s as the finish on them is lovely.Posted 3 years agojamesoSubscriber
Not just to be a dck, but
My specialized purgatorys were terrible for burping on both flows and p35s
odd, never had any issues at all with them on my P35s (2bliss Purgs).
I also previously had P35’s made by Velocity and the finish was really nice;
I have 2 wheelsets with P35s and I think they’re pricey spray-painted tat tbh, but a nice profile and a fair weight and that’s what counts : ) the paint’s flaking off all of them, they’re expensive for a sleeved rim and they’re soft. But the sidewalls bend back, I don’t care if they look tatty and I’d buy Duallys in the future unless Alex etc make something 40-45mm. Are the Duallys painted, or anodised now?Posted 3 years ago
James – Think you’re a fair bit lighter than me (i’m about 14.5 stone) judging by your great divide post which may have something to do with it. In fairness I’ve only burped it once on my Jones in the last year, used to be more frequent on the yelli screamy. Typically a sharp rooty corner coming off a relatively quick bit of trail. Usually have between 30 – 35 psi in the rear so not silly low pressures either. Same 2bliss ones.
Sillyoldman – same with my nobby nics on the rear. Never really notice any loss of pressure but there are generally a few sealant lines on the wall of the tyre after a ride.
Paint has also flaked off my P35s but only where I have dinged them. To me the dually looks to be the same finish but can’t say for sure.Posted 3 years agotazzymtbMember
29+ is a great idea, but I’m binning mine until such time as some decent rubber comes along. Knards epically bad in all but the nicest if loamy forest conditions and they are grim on wet roots of very loose conditions. The new vee tyre 29+ look interesting and will probably be out before surly actually sort the 29 dirt wizards. Anything less than 3″ isnt 29+..just a fat 29…:-DPosted 3 years agoClinkSubscriber

Have to agree – the Knard tyre is a bit poo 🙁 – I have not used mine nearly as much as I thought I would – the 4.8 Bud rolls so well and being all but 29+ in diameter – there really isn’t a reason to use anything else! As a side note – I’m ordering a 65mm carbon rim which weighs 550g 😀Posted 3 years agomartinhMember
I don’t understand the problems people have with Knards. Had mine on an RH and now on a Dually. Sure not ideal in thick mud but surprisingly good the rest of the time if the pressure is low and you keep weight on it.
No burping yet on the Dually, just used Stans tape and the Knard went up easily. Need to give it a bash round Some rocks to really test it but we don’t have any in Berkshire.
I hope the finish is better on the Dually than on my P35s, those started to peel very quickly.Posted 3 years ago
Just looking at the Vee Rubber Trax 3″ – looks interesting – also the 4.25″ H-billie looks pretty good too, to think only a few years ago, there was only 1 fat tyre to choose from! Really excited about my carbon 65mm rim – I may even be well enough to ride when it arrives :((Posted 3 years ago
