Good afternoon,

I am currently trying to source tyres and tubes for my wife and daughter's bikes.

My daughters - 20'' x 1 1/8 and ETRTO size is 451
My wife's - 24'' x 1 3/8 and ETRTO size is 540

Could anyone point me in the right direction to somewhere which sells these at reasonable prices. I have checked CRC, Evans, ebay etc and they are available but the prices vary a lot and i have no idea which tyre is best.

Also, tubes for the above tyres - i have a new set with Woods valves (Tescos) but i would prefer presta valves if they are available.

And, finally, has anyone any ideas how to search for items on CRC, Ribble and Wiggle? I am quite computer literate but their search function has defeated me - again!!! Why is nothing simple????????

Thanks all,

Richard

Wiggle has Schwalbe tyres in both 20" and 24" sizes. Just under £23 each. Not sure if this is in your price range but I had
these tyres on my city bike and they are pretty solid and worth the money.

Placing an order with the wholesaler today, I'll see if they have anything listed.

You'll be going round in circles if you can't find any tyres!

OK I'll get my coat too!!!

List did not specify I'm afraid.

I know schwable do the 20" ones you're looking for.
