Thanks adie but I've already got a set of 2.4s and don't want to put them on as they are overkill and heavier than the titanic, may put one on the front if a 2.2 doesnt come up.

How quick do you want it/them Russ?

I think my Queens are a bit too freeride for me and wouldn't mind a change to the X Kings, offers on my pair? Have not done much work as have been running the mud x all winter.

Thanks ill try velokit but the other 2 definately dont have them.

Steve, lol this tyre was bought in October 2009 and has been the only tyre on the rear apart from a trailraker during a few month this year and a 2.4 for a week.

Here is it on the back of my old meta 6 from 2009

Feck sake still had no luck getting a ust 2.2. just put one of my old ust 2.4s on.

Entire wheel with 2.2 = 1920g

Entire wheel with 2.4 = 2234g

Yup the 2.4s are 313grams heavier, thats about 3/4 pound heavier, so if im slow in wales that why. Nigel has a spare nonust 2.2 so im tempted to tube it up and slap that on the front instead.

314grams and more like 0.69lb so closer to 2/3 than 3/4. Why do you need a massive treaded tyre on the rear, just let is slide around with a light low tread tyre on it, should be able to control it even with road pedals.
