    Anyone seen any smoking hot deals on mid range 26′ rubber out there?

    If it is what it says it is, then this MK II 26×2.2 Protection folding jobbie is a firkin bargain at £24. AFAIK, Protection folding MK II’s are chilli compound too and cheapest elsewhere Ive found is £39.95.

    Link to MK II

    I’ve ordered one, expected delivery this Thursday. I’ll keep you posted if you like?

    EDIT: For some reason that I can’t figure out, the link isn’t behaving…. It is now!!

    On One’s site had some super cheap Geax tyres the last time I looked.
    They’re good ones too

    You can get continental barons on CRC for about £15-20, they’re pretty good for this time of year

    a mate recently bought a Schwalbe Fat Albert tubeless-ready rear from Germany for £29ish, which I thought was a pretty good price for tubeless. Bike-discount.de I think

    Halfords were doing 3 for 2 on all bike stuff and stock maxxis, not sure if it’s still on. 2 minions and a high roller for £31

    Yep, got a Chunky Monkey 2.4 super sticky recently. Certainly is ‘sticky’ – and huge, 9mm taller than the single ply DHF Minion it replaced.

    Evans have got spesh captains or conti mountain kings for £20 each on special, both would do the job.

    these look good. reckon a 60a on the back and a 42/60 dual compound on the front

    20 quid a piece as well

    anyone had any experience of these? believe they’re very similar to Kenda Nevegals which came on my trance, which i was very impressed with

    Did those tyres arrive slackalice? Were they the black chilli versions?

    Hi adrec, yep arrived yesterday. They are not! It is a folding tyre though…. The conti product code on it is 0100509, whereas the Protection black chilli is 0100511.

    I called the supplier who told me that all conti tyres were protection now 😕 And that black chilli wasn’t worth it! They did say that if I wanted to return it, they will refund, so it’ll be going back to them today. Apparently, they have no control over detailed product specs on Amazon.

    Cheapest I’ve found for protection and chilli is £39.96 on Wiggle… Ordered one from them last night.

    These seem very good vfm. I ended up going for specialized purgatory 2.3. 30 quid, and they look the business, nice tacky side nobbles, hard rolling surface etc

    adrec – the Canis is fantastic, particularly as a rear tyre. Really solid sidewalls on all the Onza tyres (especially if you get the FR series, essentially Exo but tougher).

    Quite tempted to buy a couple as a spare set. £16 delivered seems a steal!
