    Roger, how do you like the Gravity Vidar tire? Compared to Knard?

      I prefer the Gravity Vidar but it did fail on the really muddy section on off camber where I had a few difficult moments. I know the Knard would have held in those sections.

          I see 32" NightRider tire. I see disc brake. I don't see what type of frame. Or frame options......

                What colour is the Oracle 32" gonna be then? I see that frame looks purplish and has pink nipples, but usually Oracles are black with coloured highlights (Rim/saddle/seatpost clamp).

                32" Nightrider tyre though! That's pretty epic

                EDIT: And how does a 'good' 32er ride? I always thought the 32ers people have at the moment would always be held back by the crappy Wal-Mart special tyre that comes with them, but presumably a Nightrider 32" is lighter and has better tread.

                  Colour.... can I say I can not remember off hand. You are right though, it is colour highlight on black.

                  Coloured nipples and purple frame is the testers frame and wheel. We have a Dominator 2 rim on the production version.

                  We got an interesting response from the UK test rider when he tested it. "The tyre is awesome "

                    Hey Roger, does this not-yet-officially-existent tire have the same bead diameter as the Kent 32" wheel?

                    Any idea on when these things would be available in Canada? It makes it hard to be motivated to make homebrew solutions when a manufactured item is staring at you through the internet.

                      Yes, that is the vapour ware tyre. :-)

                        OK, now you have my attention. I'm getting close to wearing out my original Kent 32" tire, and a 32" Nightrider would be fantastic! When will this be available?

                                Okay, okay. I take back the vapor ware comment. Obviously you guys are hard at work cooking up new product and not watching cat videos on youtube.

                                Do you or anyone else at UDC have time on the Dirt Wizard 29+?

                                Stoked about the 32 as well...
