    Meaty, Beaty, big and bouncy - 650B traction monsters I have been using the Trail Taker tires on and off for several months, and I must say I like them a lot, as they're sticky, pliable and uber fat.

    Reviewed by Brian Mullin https://www.gramslightbikes.com/ I have really enjoyed my several months of test time on the Pacenti Neo-Moto 650B 2.3 tires, as they have good acceleration, cornering and traction, and excellent braking. The tire was designed by Mr. 650B himself, Kirk Pacenti, who in...

    Product Specifications: Model: Pacenti 650b Neo Moto Tire MSRP:$55 Weight: 745 grams Bottom Line: This tire is so good it has singlehandedly fueled the 650b wheel size movement.
