The Vee8 looks like it might be a decent BALLS tread for those fatty riders.  A pair of 120tpi tires for $100.

Earl from Revolution Cycles just called to let me know that my 29+ wheelset is in. I'll be going big-boned for BALLS instead of fat!

1080g----My devist8ers are almost twice that! 
100g is like .22 pounds
They actually roll pretty well on pavement and hardpack/gravel.  They do not picks up mud.  BUT...they do get noticiable drag in soggy stuff.
Still undecided on the Fatty for BALLS.  The new tires helped a ton, very comfortable ride, but don't think I can put forth the effort to keep the thing at a decent speed for 100 miles.
