    Any source for Continental Trail King RaceSport 29er 2.2?

    Title pretty much sums it up. I found the ProTection version, but not the RaceSport. Searched (what I think was) everywhere.

    Thanks, in advance.

    Bike-Discount has them. Shipping hurts...but maybe I can package some other things.

    Thanks for the heads-up, much appreciated.

    Trail King or X-King?

    OP said Trail King, but post above references X-King.

    In Europe the Trail King is called Rubber Queen.

    RQ 29 x 2.2 Racesport is at bike-components.de for ~ $37, but like bike-discount.de there is a fixed rate shipping charge (~$27) that is more tolerable if you order more. It doesn't take many more tires to justify the shipping fee. Find some buddies, there's lots of discounted tire options (virtually any of the Schwalbe and Continentals are far cheaper than US dealers).

    BTW, when bike-components inventory says 2-7 days, my experience is that is very accurate. It means that the supplier has them in stock, but need to ship them to bike-comp. But if it says "20 days or more" then I'd stay away -- means the manufacturer doesn't have them, and the wait might be many months.
