Product Description

The Larry tread applied to a very large casing. This tire measures about 4.7" on a 100mm rim! What does this mean to you? Float, float, float, my friend. Traction, Jackson. Larry tread provides good grab and steering in a multitude of conditions. For those of you looking for the maximum in traction and floatation, you have just found the mother lode. Available in 120tpi casing, in wire or Kevlar bead.

Strengths:    A good all-round tyre for fatbike purposes. Ideally mounted to the clown shoe 100mm rim. Light for its size, long wearing, impressive to onlookers ;)

Weaknesses:    Will spin up if pushed in snow or mud. Relies on its size more than the grip.

Bottom Line:   
As OEM equipment on the Surly Moonlander, the Larry's tend to serve its intended purpose: a general all purpose tyre that can be ridden on tarmac, dirt, mud and snow. Its quite proficient on beach sand which is its ideal environment. If your after a tyre that can do anything, then the Larry is a good choice.

Date Reviewed: October 9, 2012

Strengths:    Snow, sand, loose gravel and other soft surfaces

Weaknesses:    Not all bikes will fit them, they tend to wash out on some slippery surfaces, they are terrible in mud.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these for riding on snow, and they are excellent for riding on snow and sand. They have few knobs, so they do not dig in very far and so they sometimes wash out on loose surfaces. They are reasonably light for such huge tires.
I have used these on large marge, rolling darryl and clown shoe rims, and I would say that they are too wide for the large marge rims. They have great flotation on clown shoe rims, and this is the configuration that i would endorse.

Do folding Big Fat Larry's come in a box?

I ordered some folding BFLs to lighten things up. The distributor whol listed the folders at 1200gm sent my dealer a set. They were laid full out in a huge box like a wire bead, and they were 1485 and 1475 grams. If it looks like a wire bead, and scales like a wire bead, it's a wire bead. But ... Read More »

I purchased a Necro Pugs 2012 model in June of 2012. It came with undrilled RDs, Endo rear & reg Larry front. After a few initial rides on dirt, sand, and pavement trails, I decided that the Larry wasn't working for me as a front tire due to my light weight and small stature. I would have to have La ...
