    I'd be looking a the new 451 Panaracer Minits Lite.. very light, smooth tread, folds .. I think they are around 32mm .. good reviews so far.. Niagara has them currently on sale through Amazon.. they are available in 406 and 451, so need to verify which tires are being shipped.

    I was vaguely aware of the Intense Micro Knobby, but since this is for the Swift, I need a road tyre. The Panaracer Minits is a likely choice. Thanks Bruce. I need something to take on long brevets with me, as one needs to be self-sufficient and a blowout means the ride is over. No one would carry a 451 in their support van.

    I see on the BF site they say the Panaracer is the only (road) folding tyre out there.

    Pity, Niagara Cycleworks don't ship to here.

    Anyone willing to ship the Panaracers to me from Niagara? They are one a special right now, I should jump on these.

    I'd be happy to send them to you if you don't find a better route .. just checked Amazon, they had a few this morning and now are showing 'out of stock' ..

    Schwalbe bills their 25-451 RightRun model wheelchair tire as "LightSkin". Not sure if the same applies here, but "LightSkin" is also the term they use to distinguish the folding bead Big Apples:
