Schwalbe 26x1 1/4 tires (tyres) on sale. Group buy?

The price is good at 12 pounds (a little less than a buck fifty to the pound these days) and now they're on sale at 8 pounds each!
SCHWALBE HS130 26 x 1 1/4 (32/597) :: 8.00 :: Parts & Accessories :: Tyres - General :: Spa Cycles, Harrogate - The touring cyclists specialist.
I'm getting a pair or two. I've contacted them about shipping but that was just five minutes ago, I'll update when I hear back.
Anyone else interested? i'd have to add shipping from Rhode Island to your house.

It doesn't appear they ship to the US.

I think SJS Cycles does ship to the USA.

Schwalbe HS130 Tyre - $9.77 (excluding VAT)

Oops,
It looks like somewhere around $100, the shipping goes from way too much to FREE???? At least with their shopping cart.

Yeah, they just got back to me. They say the tires are too bulky. Clifford, I'll look into that link after work today. See if i can figure out their scheme.
FWIW, this guy has a pair if genuine Raleigh tires that he's willing to ship for !2 pounds;

I'm in. At least 4 for me, but would get more if we can't meet the minimum.

I'm pretty sure I bought a pair of those from Spa Cycles a year or two ago. Guess they were in a shipping mood back then.

If you need to pad out an SJS order, I could be persuaded to snag a Jtek Shiftmate.

I believe they are now the primary supplier of the device.

I'll think about models over the next day or two.

And, fortunately, your re-shipping should be cheap

BTW, anybody know if the HS130 is happy with a double-twist fold? It might make shipping easier.

Or, whatever you call that thing that you start with 1 circle, and end up with 3.

I'm in Britain.
I might be able to order a boat-load of tyres from SJS or Spa and ship them to a designated address in the States.
I'm not sure if that would save you much money - if at all.? You'd still have to pay for postage to me, then the postage across the Pond.
I think you might be able to put one twist into those tyres, to create a 'figure of eight' pattern. I think they have steel beads, so they won't take much more than that....

I must warn you that I've never done anything like this before though, so it might be cheaper and faster to get them to post direct to you...

Thanks! Might not save money but you may be more willing to cooperate.
I haven't had a chance to contact SJS. Sorry to keep everybody waiting.

If the company gives free shipping for a minimum order, then that is the way to go, provided you can pad out your order with stuff you (or somebody) needs, all at reasonable prices.

The E-Bay tires may also save some headaches.

Know someone that manufactures Bikes? OEM pricing is lower than wholesale to Dealers.

Buying in UK you have to buy GBP which are more expensive than the dollar ..

1.6:1 ~ 1,75, it varies on a daily basis

SJS says shipping 12 tyres would cost 85 pounds. That's about $120, so we're looking at about $22 per tyre total, plus shipping from my house in Rhode Island to yours.
Who's still in?

What model shiftmate are you looking for?

I think I need the Shiftmate #1 .

But, I'm still trying to decide what I actually need.

I'm wanting to try Campy shifters + Shimano Cassette.

With 9s, I think I've settled on trying a Campy 9s shifters + Campy 8s derailleur = Shimano 9s cassette, and No Shiftmate.

10s would require a Shiftmate #1 (or perhaps also using the Campy 8 derailleur).

11s is apparently close, but uses about half the difference of the Shiftmate #1 .

I've also had a little problems getting the full range with my current Suntour FD with Microshift 9 shifters, but I'm probably better off just replacing the FD. It does have a top pull to bottom pull reversing pulley, so a shiftmate-like device would be easy to incorporate.
