    Who likes the blunts?

    Not that kind, you ****ing burn-outs. The velocity blunt 35s. AKA the P-35s. Anybody riding them?

    I like the idea of getting more meat on the ground and I'm thinking that with the lower pressures you could run on these babies that my rigid ride might be a little more forgiving. Sounds like they add another level of stiffness--might could be good for me, I'm a big guy at 6'2'', 220lbs.

    Anyone?

    No, but I've run Transition Revolution 36s and Syncros DPS 36s.

    I am running the Pacenti Blunts on a 27.5 format on my fully rigid Single Speed. I think they are a bit on the heavy side, but they seem pretty stiff and durable.

    I have had a couple of issues with the XT hubs, but the rims have stayed true.

    I am 6'2" and was 220, but now down to 200. I have about 2 years on them.

    I have a P35 up front on my rigid KM & like it lots - gives my Purgatory 2.4" a nice large footprint, & a bit of cush (for having no moving parts).
    My brother likes his Blunts, but they're a bit thinner than P35.

    We both be large (me=240# & he=255#) & they've survived for a few yrs so far.

    OH-talking tires, calling them blunts-HIGHLY ILLOGICAL!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
