    This is the best price I have found for 27.5 tires, just have to wait for them to come from Germany...

    1 Soul, What did shipping run??

    I was think getting 4 tires so shipping is listed at $26 so each tire would be sub $50s unless I am missing something??

    Thanks

    eBikeStop has 'em cheaper than that (not cheaper than the German site, but no potential customs holdups).

    I ordered my Nobby Nic 2.35 w/ SnakeSkin for $59 and change.

    Also, motoguru, Euros != Dollars.

    Those are Euros as rr points out....

    Shipping was about $27, total for two tires shipped was $107.

    Any reason not to get some of the Performance level Nics for every day use? Seems cheap, less than $70 for 2 shipped.

    Is there a real world difference between the old Racing Ralph 2.25 and the 2013 version of the same tire?

    Wish they'd do a 2.35 Racing Ralph in 650b....

    That's a typo in the title, look at the listed specs.

    Quote:

    Size (Inch) 27.5 x 2.25, 650 x 57B Size (ETRTO) 57-584
    2.35's are usually listed at 60mm wide (or 650 x 60B / ETRTO 60-584).

    I'm gonna try it anyway. The worst that could happen... 2.25s. :ihih:

    Not sure if it's 2012 or 2013 version that has a new tread pattern.

    4 HD 2.35s 650B for $193 shipped to cali. $48 each Nice

    They have a button on top right for English and USD so the Euro comment above is not and issue.

    Schwalbe tires are the best.

    Personally, I'd spend the extra few bucks and get them from Hammerhead. Their customer service is ****ing outstanding. Never know when you need some help with your order and Klause may not speak English...

    Going by Schwalbe's website the 650bx 2.35" Racing Ralp doesn't exist....

    They also don't show any Nobby Nic performance in 27.5...

    Now I think i'll hold off on the order from the Germans. :madman:

    Not to mention on the German site some other goodies are lower priced than here. I picked up two Schwalbe's. But also an XT Shadow plus rear for $78 and an all-important Sponge Bob bar buddy. The lowest here was $120 for that XT rear. Came in two weeks. Excellent.

    Caution to anyone ordering the SuperGravity version 650b HD from ebikestop. I ordered two and what they shipped was the Snakeskin version instead. I verified this by the Schwalbe website: Hans Dampf | Schwalbe North America

    Hoping they make good on this error. I noticed other websites also offering the same product code and also listing it as the SuperGravity....

    EDIT: I just checked the ebikestop website and looks like they corrected this, just a little too late though...
