After a pair of lightweight tyres. Not silly light like Furious Freds though, something with some grip and 2.1/2.2 ish size but under 500g would be good. Thinking Rocket Rons or ??? Thanks.

Have some 2.2 folding mountain kings from crc never used. Any use? Not sure what they weigh to be honest but think they're reasonable. Let me know if interested!

There's quite a few Mountain King varieties by the looks of things - do you know which yours are ? I think the ones I'd be after are the Supersonic ones.

:shock: you won't get much lighter than my supersonics, this side of spending a fortune on maxxis 285's or 330's

Oh sorry Steve, I thought you were just saying they didn't come in 2.2 size. Are you selling them then ?
