    26"x 1 1/8 Conti Ultra Gatorskins

    I've been using these for a while and found them quite good, but I'm having a helluva hard time getting them here in Australia, is anyone else finding they're hard to get, wherever you live?

    Also, does anyone know of another tyre, (US =tire), of similar quality and 120psi

    We use Maxxis Re-Fuse. Folding/kevlar bead. Arimid layer (kevlar) to protect against punctures. Got 2,950 miles on rear tire on our tandem before we replaced it.

    I use the Schwalbe Stelvio & it have been a great tire. I think it has a max pressure of 115 psi. & is not foldable. So it may not be what you are looking for.

    I think the Stelvio line has been dropped for the new Durano, but I can't find either of them on the Schwalbe website in 26 inch size. I would prefer a non folding tyre.

    Any other suggestions?

    I ordered my last set from Tandems Ltd. Alabama, USA. They advertise them in the latest catalogue. However, shipping to OZ from the US may cost you more than the tires.
