Retro-styled modern tyres in the sales. 40% off at Wiggle:

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/charge-splashba ... -mtb-tyre/

but cheaper still at Evans:

http://www.evanscycles.com/products/cha ... e-ec025894

Not an endorsement (I haven't tried them) but I know they have their fans. Fill up your boots.

Thanks for the heads up, bought a set of 1.8's and 2.1's for a rainy day :)

Cheers

I had a 6th sense my name was being mentioned 'cos I got a little tingling sensation...

...then I realised I'd been sat on my foot for 30mins & it was pins & needles :lol:

Just ordered 2 pairs, be a crime not to at that price :twisted:

Hell I have paid the same all in for those 4 tyres for just one tyre before :shock:

I think he likes them! :lol:

Spoke to a couple of other folks using them in woodsy areas and they loved them too. More a fast 3season tyre than a bog monster I'd have thought, but basically a decent all-rounder if you can't be bothered swapping tyres around. Like me - amazing how RaceKings cope in the sludge! :oops: :wink:

The prices at Wiggle are now £30 a piece which is a shame as i really wanted the 1.8 and Evans only have 2.1. But at the Evans price i thought what the heck i will stick with 2.1 again - also if you add the code 10NY you get a further 10% off 8)
