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.

Pug Ops with Tubeless Clown Shoe and Big Fat Larry

Hi everyone. I am new here, so yell at me if I am doing anything wrong with posting here. Yesterday I put a Clown Shoe/BFL on the front of my 2014 Pug Ops, and thought I would share the images here, since I have not been able to locate any on the net (only Necromancers with the Clown Show/BFL). The ... Read More »

Salsa Mukluk 2014, Clownshoe and Big Fat Larry

I didn't find an existing thread that seemed entirely suitable, so I'm creating a new. The information might be of interest to someone. I saw a 2014 Mukluk with Bud/Lou on Rolling Darryl rims at my LBS and the clearance was very good with a 1x10 drivetrain. My intention was to do a winter setup w ... Read More »

Big Fat Larry on Pug, any pics?

Curious if anyone has put the fat BFL tire on the rear of their Pug or Necro Pug and has photos detailing the conversion, clearances or any spacers/cog removal that might have occurred in the process. Have heard people talk about it but would like to see how it works.Read More »

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 »
