    Bontrager Racelite Hardcase in Italy?

    I have spent a good part of today searching sites in Italy, and futher afield for someplace I can order Bontrager Racelite Hardcase tires. I tried the Bontrager site which does list a few places in Switzerland, though of course that includes anyone who even so much as sells a water bottle holder.

    Yeah yeah, I have tried many of the other puncture resistant tires and they all suck. Really they do.

    Does anyone know where I might be able to pick some up?

    I live in Livorno if by chance there are so many places that sell them that you know of a place close by

    I recently took a Moby ferry to Livorno and continued on to Florence to go bike shopping. It is about a 2 hour drive from you. They give great service. If they don't carry Bontrager, I'm sure they could help you find a shop that does. The name is Florence By Bike. The number is +39 055 488992.

    Good Luck.

    Have you contacted the local Trek dealer?

    EDIT: Have you tried the offerings from Schawlbe or the Conti Ultra Gator skin? Both of these are very easy to find in Europe.
