Schwalbe Big Apple Tire, Performance HS430, Raceguard 29"

questions about the

Schwalbe Big Apple Tire, Performance HS430, Raceguard 29"

asked by: A Visitor
Will the Schwalbe Big Apple Tire 29x2.35 fit my kona 29" (kahuna DL)?
answered by: t.young
It should work, since these are probably wider than the stock tires I would see how much clearance there currently is by the chainstays.
asked by: A Visitor
WILL THEY FIT ON A 2012 SE BIG RIPPER?
THE 29X2.35
answered by: t.young
AWWWWW YEEAAAAAHHHHH.
asked by: A Visitor
What is the ETRTO size on the 29x2.35 Big Apple?
answered by: t.young
60-622.
asked by: 9rascon
are these for roadbikes or mountain bikes
answered by: canteau
They are road tires for 29er mountain bikes.
asked by: A Visitor
Can I mount these on a '12 Trek Marlin?
answered by: mwirth
In 2012 Trek made the Marlin only in a 29er version so mounting these should be no problem. You might want to check how much clearance in the chainstays you have as this is a 2.35'' tire. Thanks!
asked by: A Visitor
Are these the 2012 versions or the older versions? Thanks
answered by: slinderman
Looks like these are still the 2011 version.
asked by: A Visitor
My Redline D440 has 29x2.1 WTB vulpine tires. Can I switch up to these in the 2.35 width?
answered by: anonymous
I have the 2.35's on my d440 w/fenders....no clearance problems whatsoever.
answered by: bkearns
My guess is that shouldn't be any problem. Without the added tread, I can't see there being a clearance issue since the D440 is a true mountain frame.
asked by: A Visitor
Can I mount these to the stock wheels on a 2011 Monocog 29er? (Non-flight)
answered by: jrichard
Yes, however on the larger sizes of the tire you may run into clearance issues with the frame and/or fork.
asked by: merikgvr4
Are the tires kevlar or steel bead?
answered by: jrichard
These are a steel beaded tire as listed in the spec's.
asked by: A Visitor
Can I run these tubless?
answered by: canteau
They are designed to be run with tubes, you may be able to use a tire sealant such as Stans No Tubes but it may void the warranty.

Awesome tires! Very happy with them. A bit pricier than I was planning, but definitely worth it. Great for commuting with. I ride faster, expend less energy, and it's just all around more fun to ride on.

Big Apples in 29x2.35 are pretty much the only game in town for a 29er tire with some volume (other than Fat Franks).

Fast rolling. Nice cushion. Highly recommended.

I converted my RedLine d440 into a street bike with these tires. The ride is great. I had WTB vulpine tires on it (stock for 2010) and with these fat monster tires I cut about 5 minutes off my commute. I have to say this is a great set up for the treacherous street of NYC.

They will get noticed - either for the size, or for the reflective sidewalls.

On road for the winter with my Salsa Spearfish, these tires are quiet, and fast, almost made my Salsa feel like a road bike.

Not bad weight-wise, and have a reflector stripe.

Review of the Schwalbe Big Apple Tire, Performance HS430, Raceguard 29":
Great tires! Quite, smooth with just enough tread to ride over the loose stuff without much worry and appreciate the reflective ring on the sidewall. I put a set of 2" tires my kona unit 29er and they work great for the road. I went with the smaller profile for urban use, so they work great for me. I have a feeling if you were going to ride on some rougher paths or trails, you may benefit from the larger 2.35" tire.

Summed up: Great urban tire.

Review of the Schwalbe Big Apple Tire, Performance HS430, Raceguard 29":
These are awesome. I live in the flat land of Florida and use these to commute on paved roads. The first ride with new rubber on amazed me, no roll resistance. On a smooth paved level surface the ride is so clean you feel as you aren't moving. Have used Continental Town & Country in the past but find these to be a superior road tire.

Great tire for commuting and gravel riding on my Salsa Fargo. Lower pressure gives the bike a "full suspension" feel. Be aware of cornering on gravel, these are slicks. Highly recommend these tires. Thanks Tree Fort Bikes for such prompt service.
