    I was looking for more about the pink Halo Twin Rail tire on waalrus's freewheeling 26'er because it looks like candy to me and happened to see that Chain Reaction has that tire in 24x2.2" size now. I don't know if I missed that when I scanned that site in August or what. It's available in pink, green and grey with black sidewalls. Could be a contender...

      The new Duro 24" x 3"?

      This comes from another thread entitled "If the 3" duro goes away" (See:http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=113518)

      I just compared the tread pattern of the photo of the Halo Contra 24" x 3" on the Chain Reaction Cycles website with the actual Duro Wildlife 24" x 3" that came on my N24 and it's the same tire!

      So there's your answer: What happens when the Duro Wildlife 24" x 3" disappears is we start buying & using the Halo Contra 24" x 3".

      And at $34.49 from Chain Reaction vs. $55 from UDC US, we get a $20 price break.

      Nice! Good find UnicycleSam123!

          The Halo Contra is actually a Duro, with another name brand. I've seen the Halo once, it was printed Halo but it was molded Duro. So whenever Duro stops making they're tire, Halo will also stop. Only unicyclists ride 24x3 today. As far as I know, nobody still ride 3" wide tires on bikes, not even the very few freeride bikers left (fat bikes are the exception).

                  This could be what makes the 24 die. Not going to lie 24s are kind of silly

                    For the Intense tire, try here:

                    http://uni_cyclist.home.comcast.net/...st/uniproshop/

                    It has a contact number on it. Jamey, (Unicycle6869 here on the forums) and I talked a bit about this topic last July. He used to have uniproshop.com, which has been downgraded to the link above. He was co-owner and had the remaining stock of the Intense 3.0 tires. He's since moved out of the country, but said he believes there are still some tires left in CA.

                    If the contact on that site doesn't work, try contacting Jamey via the forum. He can get you in touch with the stateside person. If it sounds fishy, it isn't. Jamey's legit.

                    As far as the 24s being kind of silly goes, remember- most of unicycling is kind of silly in the first place.

                    Give it a bit of time and someone will be championing the new latest, greatest size. Is it 26x3.8? 26x4.0? 32? 29+? 650b?

                    This will go on while some killer riders will still be smoking the rest of us on a 24 with a Duro.

                    If you like the 24 then find some tires and ride it. I'm not super attached to the size, but there are times when it's the right at the right time for me.

                      It's 24 x 4.0.

                          Now, this is going to be interesting!

                          How long had we waited for a 24" fat tire??

                            At the risk of derailing this topic, I'm curious based on some recent comments about attitudes toward the 24" muni format. It seems that some just see it as a stepping stone to bigger wheels but I also have a feeling that the pendulum has swung back a little this year, that some folks have recently gotten them or have dusted off one they hadn't ridden in a while and are really liking the size for more technical rides.

                            I guess I don't have the initiative to create a survey topic about this right now. If anyone does, please feel free to do so. However I get the sense that 24" was pretty much a fad for downhill bicycles, no longer needed when suspensions improved and frames got clearance added for fat 26" tires. But they were out there to be adopted when mountain unicycling caught on and might still suit a lot of muni riders better than other tire sizes. Yes or no?

                                Thanks, knoxuni. I already had you in the "stepping stone" category.
