    Tires in TO?

    Can someone puh-leeeeze tell me where I can find a store with a decent in stock selection of Panaracers? I made a couple of calls yesterday and heard "we don't have those in stock and maybe not in the warehouse" yada-yada and figured this route would be a better bet.

    So? Something current, too - not 5 year old Smoke's or Dusters. (hasn't the world outlawed the Duster's YET?!)

    PATIA!

    Oh, GTA/Miss/Scarb, too. Don't mind the drive, just want to know it's worth the call/trip.
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    ... and cookies. :D

    I'm not sure which models you had in mind, but MEC used to carry a few of them in store, as well as on their web site.

    Don't forget the Europe Bound on Front Street between the Hummingbird Center and the St.Lawrence Market. They usually have stock at good prices.

    Dukes on Queen - pricey though...

    Good Luck

    So much for my e-mail notification.

    Okay, well, seeing as how it's going to rain today anyways i'll skip the ride and go right to the phone and make a few calls. Looks like today might be expensive.

    THANKS guys!!!! I'll let you all know how broke I get, umm, I mean what I buy.

    Roll X? Older tire? Search time.

    I just took off my Panaracer Fire XC's and put on Specialized Roll X's. What a difference! The Roll X's pedal easier (roll faster) and seem to have more traction in all conditions I have tried them in. I haven't had a chance to try them in pure mud yet.

    They came stock on my GF Stumpy FSR. They are the Roll-X Pro, Kevlar bead. It does make some difference as they make many diferrent Roll-X tires in different rubber compounds.
