Strengths:    Traction, traction, did I say traction. Awesome float on soft snow.

Weaknesses:    cost, rolling resistance is a trade off for great traction.

Bottom Line:   
this rear tire is fantastic, I could climb every hill that others could not. Build confidence going down hills as well. Braking in snow is also really good when a downed tree is on a down hill. My only complaint is that it is $170 a piece. I also have the Bud for the front and they are great together. Surly really did bring out a great product and I am enjoying these tires in the snow.

The snowshoe XL seems like a reasonable contender but doesn't dethrone the lou. I already have GC's for summer so all-w ... Read More »

Surly Bud and Lou 4.8'' v. Vee Rubber H-Billie 26”x4.25” 120tpi tires?

I just purchased my first fat bike and couldn't be more excited! I bought the Minnesota 3.0 with the Rockshox Bluto fork. I am considering whether to keep the H-Billie 4.25 tires or to upgrade to the Surely Bud and Lou 4.8 inch tires. I live in NJ so we get a fair amount of snow in the winter, bu ... Read More »

Until such time I get my 4.8" Bud and Lou running tubeless…

Recommended innertube with REMOVABLE Presta valve cores? Currently running the DH 26"x2.5-2.8" Kenda tubes with removable cores, they seem more robust than the non-DH versions. Reason for running removable cores: Stan’s no flats liquid so as to reduce likelihood of getting punctures. How light ca ... Read More »
