24 X 2.4 Maxxis Holy Roller?

Does anyone use, or know about 24 X 2.4 Maxxis Holy Roller tire? I was
thinking about ordering one for my schwinn 24" uni, ($30 through Maxxis.com)
so I could at least have a decent fat, grippy tire on it for short hopping
and maybe some grinding. The frame will easily accomidate this size, but
will the rim? I have welgo pinned pedals on it also. I am now waiting to get
my shin/knee/elbow/wrist armour via 661 4x4 and 661 2x4. I got the combo
pack for $ 39 at blueskycycling.com. the acyual link is:
http://www.blueskycycling.com/produc...-Combo-Kit.htm
I think since I am 5'11'and about 165 I would be better off with a 24"
instead of a 20", and because I want to use it for BOTH muni and trials.
Yes, I will probably get a better uni in the future; would the torker dx be
a good starter, or should I just go all out with a kh or similar quality?
Thanks! Terry

I know Mike Fule uses or used the Holy roller tire on his pashley. Here is a piece he wrote about a ride on it http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...t=holly+roller

FWIW, these come as stock on all the high-end MTBs at the LBS. (haha acronyms)

If 2-3000$ mountain bikes are running these, there has to be something to them.

Mikefule also likes them, but he's really weird.

Oi, I resemble that remark!

I have had 4 different tyres on my Pashley 26 MUni, ranging from about 26 x 1.95 to 26 x 2.4. The Holy Roller 2.4" steers best, handles best, feels best. I assume, but don't know, that the 24 x 2.4 will be the same section and tread.
