W240s out of stock, second choice?

ARGH! I finally got the money together for a pair of W240s, but Peter White's out! Is he the only US dealer that stocks them? I think so.

Anybody have input on a good second choice? I'm looking for 700c, at least 40mm wide. Prefer as wide as possible. I'll gladly trade extra traction for increased rolling resistance.

Thanks for any help

Google is your friend. Try looking here for a couple of ideas so perhaps you won't need a second choice.

I don't know if Google is your friend or not. Your link didn't find him any alternatives. I couldn't find any online either. Might just be a case of too little too late.

Actually it did. It was a link to a Mountain bike review forums thread that was basically asking the same question as the OP. I was too lazy to dig out the links at the time, but it mentions someplace the Haverhill Inn & Bike shop in NH, and another called Beaver Sports in Fairbanks (no link provided).

Here's the relevent quote from the thread, posted by someone named twobytandem.

Your tip for Haverhill Inn was fruitful. I let them know you sent me their way and I believe Noreen will be thanking you when you bring your bike in

She directed me to Beaver Sports up in Fairbanks and they do have 2 sets but are ~$80 a pop + shipping due to their local. I'm going to need to stew on that one for a little bit.


The post date on this was last week, by the way.
