I've just noticed that wiggle have tyres on offer this month. I have an old kona frame and I need some tyres for it... anyone got any good suggestions for some "ahem" modern tyres that will fit with a resonable amount of clearance between the chain stays of a 91 Cinder Cone?

Panaracer 1.8s ;) Excellent tyres, good grip, and long lasting.. Continental's are good too, normally from past experience I have found that conti's 2.1 is normally every one else's 1.9 ;)

They are doing WTB Velociraptors for some daft price under £7 if I remember right...and they were classics back in around 96, so a good retro compromise.

I've got some IRC Backcountry 2.25s on my 94 Cindercone and they fit just fine. I've yet to try in the mud though.

Didn't know that! Do they do the 1.8 as well? It's about the only thing that fits the back of my tandem!
