    WTB Mutano Raptors?

    I was wondering if anyone was running these and if so what they thought. I was thinking of getting a pair for the Surly CC I am picking up Saturday. Right now it has a set of 32's on it and I would like to go bigger. Just not sure how big yet.

    Mutano Raptors are great if you can get them. I have used a 45mm for the front of my Cross Check off and on for two years now. I originally only bought one because I was running a 29" x 1.9" on the front and intended on using it as a rear, now I am kicking myself because I would like to have a set of them and can't find another.

    Sweet. I went ahead and ordered a pair of 44's for myself.

    Where from?

    Mutano 44's have been out of production for a couple years now. I would love, like the poster above, another to give me a complete set.

    I find they roll fast on pavement and hardpack, are as competent on hardpacked corners as any knobbed tire, and provide a nice bit of cush on bumpy trails.

    Cool. FWIW, I've had good experiences with that seller.

    Well that makes me feel better since I went ahead and ordered a set. I can't wait to get them and get them on the bike.
