Ideal for those after retro looking tyres at an OK price.

Really piddles me off I can't get these in wholesale. No Danish wholesaler. The UK one won't export and the German one doesn't stock 'em!

Same with Spoon saddles.....

:cry:

Check out Wiggle.com
Right now they have both sizes at a price of £18 per tire and they will send them to Denmark.
Just bought a pair there and some other stuff. Over £50 free shipping is available, too.

I got 2 pairs.

Beware they are very wide for their sizing.

The 1.8s are the same size as my nobbynics 2.1

the 2.1 are very big for 2.1s

They seem ok - not as fast running as the schwalbes though.

They're not wide for the sizing, 1.8" were measured at a fraction over 1.8" including the knobbles. (1.835" iirc, so a bit under a mm wider on a Mavic 217 rim)
2.1's at 55mm incl knobbles..

More like Schwalbes are coming up small for you.
