    I have a Whyte Glencoe.

    I would like to fit knobbly tyres to it, I have a Hutchinson Taipan 2.1 on the front which is fine as it has massive front forks.

    The rear has narrow stays and the 2.1 will not clear.

    I know a 1.9 Crossmark will fit but I can’t find one in the UK for toffee.

    Please can you suggest any others I should be looking at ?

    My Sagauro’s are a (small) 2.0 and are great fast summer and estate road tyres.

    I think we had a Bontrager xr2 in 1.8 flavour before.

    What you need is a 650b tyre, forget about 27.5 you wont find any of them. Also forget about looking for a 1.9″ you will have better luck finding a 47mm.

    Thanks all, I have ordered a trail king in a 2.0 as its a 50 Ertro so that should fit.
