Strengths:    Good grippy tire. Cushy, low pressure lets the tire absorb impacts instead of compression. Works well in low to medium speed technical situations. Confident feeling.

Weaknesses:    Heavy, but all things fat are! Though the tire works great at low speeds, the rebound you can get from ruts and big rocks at speeds over 15 mph can be a handful if you aren't paying attention. If you can manual a fat front bike then you won't have too many issues with rebound

Bottom Line:   
Riding a fat front bike is quite different from riding a narrow tire bike. This 3.8" tire has a nice tread pattern that combined with a low tire pressure (9psi) will let you grip and lean over stuff you would think twice about with a 2.5. I built my fat front bike to take on a wet and muddy winter, which hasn't happened but this tire still shines and plays nice on dry, loose, loamy singletrack. Cushy ride, motorcycle tire looks.

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 »

General purpose "touring" tire: Knard 26" or Larry?

I would like to shed some weight of my wheels by replacing the heavy wire bead tires with some kevlars and can't decide which of those two tires to go for. Any thoughts which one might be better with rolling resistance and thread durability when loaded? Dirt tracks, gravel, sand but also some tarma ... Read More »
