4.0 Funky Floaters, only $55 each from Planet X uk!
:thumbsup:

The white may work for a "stealth" winter bike.:cornut:

Haters are going to hate but these are 1980's RAD IMO.

Definitely FUNKY

I'm usually one to like something a little different but I don't think I could handle those colors (especially the pink and green)

Definitely a different aesthetic.

A green one is on the way for my nuclear orange FB4 that is also on the way, if the compound is acceptable I will get another.
The colored tires of yesteryear were craptastic but modern tech may have overcome this, my colored road bike tires do not seem to be lacking in the grip department.

I’m considering purchasing some pinks for my wife and some oranges for mine, but the last time (and only time) I purchased anything from On-One.co.uk (two black Floaters) mysteriously two days later my credit card account had been compromised, and I had to cancel it.

That still mystifies me, as they are EXCELLENT tires for all conditions, even better than Surly Nates (I hate having to admit that :madman: ).
You're the first person I've ever heard say that. Maybe I have not been paying attention, but that does not match my experience. Just sayin...

I’ve never ridden them on snow. I only ride rutted/rocky/rooty/steep/treacherous/off-camber/muddy singletrack and fireroads with them. Even when the rear starts to wear down there is amazingly traction for uphill stuff.

They come up as $65 for me.
That is for the black, (still a great deal for fat tread).
You have to change the delivery location to US to get rid of tax/vat and buy two to get free shipping ...


The lack of affordable replacement tires is what was holding me back from getting a Fatty. I rode a Mukluck when they came out and liked everything about them but the $150 tires. Kudos to Brant/ On-One for streamlining distribution and bringing affordable bike parts to cycling enthusiast. :thumbsup:

$51.48 now!
Sorry, but I just did it again, and they are $65.90 USD. Black is not even an option. This was going through the link the OP posted.

I'm thinking get green or white and add sharpie camo, woodland or winter/urban. Could look rad or stupid, depending on One's artistic talent. I think Shiggy said the colorant may affect grip of the rubber, though. Would love to see ride report when they arrive. I'm loving my self-studded black Floaters this New England winter but Floaters are more traction than I need in summer.
