Get them while you can. It appears Most of the James Gang has been discontinued for '06. Jimmy 2.10 wire bead is the only one in the new catalog.

James Gang still availabe in all sizes for 06...

BUT no more Big JIM UST model. I guess the Nobby Nic UST will take it's place. I love the NN, but the Jimmy Series are sweet tires....

Just an example:

2006 - USD November 2005

57-559 26 x 2.25
11133755 B-SK HS 327 Big Jim Sport Offroad-Racing-Comp.
11633712 B-SK HS 327 Big Jim LIGHT foldable Offroad-Racing-Comp.

Jimmies in UST:
1.85 or 2.10 willbe availabe in 06

Shiggy, re-check your catalog. Unless they realsed soem new info that I did not receive.

I just triple checked my '06 catalog from Interbike. Shows only the Jimmy Sport and Jimmy Puncture Protection. Both wire bead and 2.10

Fairly big, reasonably light and versatile. Too small for your tastes Shiv.

They would work well for that. Look at the Schwalbe Albert 2.25 tubeless, too. A little more durable (larger tread blocks, tougher casing) and slightly heavier (870 vs 780g).

Bontrager has a Tubeless Ready version of the Big Earl 2.5 on the way (under 900g).
