Just wondering how many folks have had siewall issues with the Nobby Nics? I like the way they ride and want to keep using them.

I have a set of Nobby Nic 2.1s with about 6 hours of riding on them and discoverd a 1/2" gash in the sidewall of the rear tire. It did not result in a puncture (I am using tubes) but I am not comfortable riding it anymore.

I am thinking this is just a fluke though. I rode the E100 12 hour race solo on a set of 2.25 Racing Ralphs and the sidewalls look great. The course had a lot of sharp embedded rocks.

I've been on the 2.25's for five rides now, they are holding up very well. I'm riding pretty rocky terrain on the Colorado front range.

Virtually no perceptable wear. Very grippy and they roll very well.

I try alot of different tire combo's and these are the best I've had yet. Far outperforming the Nev/ BG combo. I run pressures in the low to mid thirties.

So far so good

But I've only been on the 2.4s for a month. My first ride was on Noble canyon in San Diego which has a ton of sharp rock on it and they suffered no damage.

I've got 6 or 7 hours on a 2.1. No rocks where I usually ride but small stumps and Cactus. They are holding up good(no tubes).
