    Yesterday, I got a nice, older bike that I intend to use on longer rides (like 200k - 300k brevets). It has 27" wheels which have 1-1/4" tires on it. This is a nice set-up, but I'd prefer to carry a spare tire with me that doesn't stow awkwardly. I've checked a few places looking for this size in a folder, but have come up empty. Am I chasing a phantom that doesn't exist? Will I have to look for 700c rims if I want to be able to carry a folded spare?

    Thanks in advance

    The Panaracer Pasela TG (Tour Guard) is a great tire with Kevlar belt and is a folding tire. Comes in 27" and 700c.

    Available at Nashbar .

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks! Price ain't bad either.

    Kind of odd that this isn't found on the Performance site - where I did come of my initial checking.

    A great tire. I rode my last pair for about 6500 miles and the threads in the bead tape started coming off all over the place. There was still plenty of tread left.
