This is just a quick note that our popular 26″ x 2.3″ Rat Trap Pass tires are back in stock in all versions. We’ve been surprised by the popularity of these tires…
Many cyclists have a cherished old mountain bike, an expedition tourer or a tandem that is transformed with a set of supple high-performance tires. Others had Enduro Allroad bikes custom-built around these tires. In fact, I’ve been riding the Rat Trap Pass myself, and all that volume and speed is almost intoxicating.
At the other end of the 26″ tire spectrum is our Elk Pass 1.25″ tire. It’s one of the lightest, fastest 26″ tires ever made, and many riders rave about them. Here is what Georgena Terry, the famous bike builder, wrote:
“I really didn’t want to get off the bike. For those of you who wondered where I was for most of last month… well, I was riding my bike!”
Her experience is typical of how our customers feel when riding on Compass tires. Whether it’s in letters, e-mails or in person, hearing that our products bring so much joy is the best part of my job!
