I have a pair of racing ralphs for sale or preferably swaps - viewtopic.php?f=39&t=256906

Sounds a perfect match 471gms each and 2.1 If I remember correctly. Very little wear as per photos.

OK, these have my attention.

Give us a bit to sort out my options.

Cheers,

Peter :D

How about ...
Rocket Rons - 2.1 width, lighter than Ralphs. Have been used tubeless so have remnants of sealant and a repair patch but in decent (7/10) condition and great summer tyres. £25 posted.
Or ...
Furious Freds - 2.0, seriously light ~ 310g each and super fast rolling, bought for WW project so fitted but barely run in 9.5/10. £35 posted.


FF's sound interesting - I might make two pairs up by matching them with the Ralph's from above ...

The Rons are out - the patch puts me off sorry :-(

WD :D

No worries, sometimes there's a spikey thing too big for even the legendary Stans to deal with. The patch has held perfectly though since. Funny that tubeless tyres need repair patches for tubes ! :roll:
The FF's are the Evo triple compound variety and clean as a whistle.

OK, all sorted thanks 8)

Two pairs on the way, going to try a RR on the front and a FF on the back (of the Airborne). If I don't like the FF on the back I will put the other RR on the back and I might put the FF's on the Marin, even though I said it would never see knoblies again ... :shock: :lol:

GT-Steve - if you get me the full spec of the kings, my brother might be interested ;-)

WD :D
