Does anyone know where I can buy online some good 27*1,1/4 tyres. Nashbar.com seem to have 27 inch conti's and a few other brands, has anyone used them at all.

Thanks in advance.

Sheldon Brown has a range of different 27" tyres at Harris Cyclery at:

http://harriscyclery.net/itemlist.cfm?category=154&catalogId=39

For a tough 27X1.25 you couldn't go past the Scwalbe Marathon - excellent
touring tyre, used on world expeditions. I've just ordered (and promptly
received) half a dozen of the Avocet Fasgrip 27X7/8" to keep me in tyres for
the next 10-20 years.

I should of mentioned sheldons site but I forgot too. I was in their today and the minimum order is $100 US for orders sent overseas. I was looking at the Scwalbe Marathon, maybe as you say I might have to buy a few to get me over the $100 mark.

Oh yes, forgot that. I recall now that my 6 tyres and 6 tubes came to
$US101. :)

Timing is everything.

If you run through the order process but stop short of finalising it,
they'll give you the shipping cost as well.

I went through the process but stopped when they wanted my credit card details. If I don't get an email reply then I will do as you say.

No worries. If you put in the location, the checkout should tell you
postage. It has some weird formula which often doesn't make much sense,
but they stick to it. They send via USPS (ie regular gov't post.)

One point - Shimano components can only be ordered on weekends.
No kidding.

Try Abbotsford Cycles on Swan St, Richmond. They have lots of bits and pieces, wouldn't surprise if they also had 27 inch tyres.

I would be happy to buy a pair from you if you do purchase a few of
these tyres. Having just been given an all alloy 6 speed racer of 80's
vintage that I intend to refurbish.

Shimano in the US limit the number of bike shops that can sell Shimano over the web. Looks like Shimano USA might not be looking on the weekends and so the sale can go through? USA - the land of free enterprise!!??

Funny you should say this because I noticed that aebike.com sell individual Deore shifters but it said that shimano does not like them selling via the web so contact them direct but maybe on the weekends it's ok.

I second that, I bought my mtb hubs from there and saved an absolute bucket
load.

I had excellent service from them and will be back.
