My 8 year old is getting close to burning through the stock tires on his Timberjack 24; alot of miles on them this summer. :thumbsup:

He's done a few XC races this summer and I was considering going to something narrower and tubeless at the same time.

We were at a race yesterday and another kid there with the same bike was running the 24x2.8 Vee Crown Gems. His father and I compared them side by stock with the stock 24x3.0 Cheng Shin tires and they were basically the same width. The Crown Gems are KNOBBY.

I see on the Vee website they list 24x2.6 in black and skinwalls. I see the skinwall on Commencals website but can't find the blackwalls.

Anyone know where I can get them? Maybe a different tire?

No, they only have the 2.8s listed in their webshop. I just called my local dealer since Vee lists QBP as a distributor. He looked up the tires and QBP carries the 2.8s and the 2.25s but no 2.6 width.
