Updated to 29" wheels and 2.8 tire (front), 2.6 rear. WTB Vigilante tough casing, high grip.
Where do you live? How are you liking the Vigilantes so far?
I live in North Vancouver. Bought the tires on a recommendation from Andrew Major.
Mounted the Vigilantes on Friday night and only got out for a 1hr ride with my 4 year old on Sunday so it wasn't a true test of the tire's capabilities.
Thoughts so far:
- I'm impressed at how thick/supportive the sidewalls are,
- Even though the tough/high grip is heavy (1,400g), it rolls fast enough,
- The volume is good, they are true to size (when measured with the caliper),
- The front 2.8 seated with a floor pump, without problem on both the front and rear rim, the 2.6 wasn't as tight to the rim so I had to drive over to the gas station and use the compressor.
I'd originally bought 2.8 front and rear but the rear 2.8 didn't provide enough clearance so I had to size down to 2.6.
