    Need Larger Tires?

    If you are interested in larger tires, Niagara has Schwalbe Marathon Supremes for about $27 a tire, in 700X40C size. It will measure within 1mm of 40 on an 18mm wide rim(internal), at 85 PSI

    A really great tire, at a really great price ---- I'd have bought some more, but, I've got 5 in the basement right now.

    You will like them!

    Specialized Crosstrail Sport - '08
    Nishiki Sport - misappropriated from my youngest son (circa 1984)
    Marin Stinson - misappropriated by my youngest grandson - '01
    "The Beast" - 1990 Schwinn Airdyne (in the basement for winter torture)

    That's an incredible deal. The Supreme is widely regarded as the best general purpose road tyre ever made. It's very considerate of you to tell people about this - I'd buy several pairs if I was in the US.

    ..At the opposite end of the value for money scale, I thought I was going to buy a pair of Stan's Raven 29er tyres tonight. But the UK price is 65. Each.

    So no!
