    Need help finding a discontinued tire

    Im having trouble locating the Specialized Eskar 29 tire, I know they discontinued it, but there has to be some out there somewhere. I looked at the Purgatory and its pretty close in tread design, but I just really want to find another Eskar.
    I love my bike!

    They are out there I betcha. I loved that tire. Probably bought 8 or 9 at least while they were around.

    They were popular up here in Salida. Shop here had lots, but I finally bought their last one in 2012 some time.

    Purgatory = "Eskar v3": better grip, less rolling resistance. Same predictable drift
