I need to buy another batch of tires and tubes for my 20" (451) shockproof.

Where do you suggest?

Almost every recumbent specialist dealer should have or be able to get
the 28-451 Schwalbe Stelvio, 28-451 IRC Roadlite, 28-451 Odyssey "Red
Racer", 37-451 Ritchey Speedmax, 28-451 and 37-451 Primo Comets and
28-451 Primo V-Track.

If all else fails, the Bike Friday folks ( http://www.greengear.com/ )
sell a variety of 20" (406 & 451) tires through their website. I
understand a fair number of gnomes are on the payroll.

You might try Power On Cycling (www.poweroncycling.con)in Plant City,
FL. The owner, Mark, is a first rate mechanic and a true recumbemt
enthusiast. I own a Shock Proof too. European recumbents require a
fairly high level of support.
Mark stocks, or will get, that otherwise VERY difficult to obtain
brand specific part.

BTW the way. I am using the IRC Roadlite 451x 1 1/8". Nice, fast tire.
I got 2,500 miles on the last set with no flats. You can not touch a
Shock Proof for speed and comfort on the flats. Uphill, it's kind of
heavy.
