I have run a meaty 20x2.25 version this tire on my BMX for years, and i think its a great tire. i have always wished that there were a 26" option, as i think that it is a perfect step between a semi tread like the holy roller and a full on knobbie. it's perfect for DJ and urban riding, anywhere that has varied and mixed terrain. why havent they ever made a 26" version? am i the only one who thinks this thing would be sweet on a 26" DJ bike?
Thant all, just thought i would share my frustration.
end rant.

Not a great seller in 20", not a big market. Why not try the 26" Larsen TT?

I had a larsen, it didn't grip very well and the sidewall blew out. new england is hard on tires. i liked this one because it has aggressive knobs and a thick sidewall.
