The continental is a 406 tyre not a 451. The vendor should use a better description than the 1 1/8. It a 28 mm 406 tyre, it will not fit a 451 rim. Conti does not make any 451 tyre!

+1 on the Panaracer Minit Lite....I have them on the Ti Oregon and they are much faster then the Primo Comets.....And they fold!

For Schwalbe's currently in production/factory available tires in the U.S. go to Schwalbetires.com

Don't expect to save money but the service has proved excellent with prompt processing and shipping of orders.

Also, don't over look the high performance wheelchair models available in a few bicycle sizes.

The Panracer Minit Lite is nice in 451.

Schwalbe Durano from Chain Reaction are only A$18 Nigel

Another vote for the Stelvio from me. It's been reliable and puncture-free for me.

A good source for 451 tires is Bike Friday: http://store.bikefriday.com/index.php?cPath=49
At least they have the decency to designate the tires properly. It also pointed another new entry: the Panaracer Minit Light. If you're going to be racing on smooth pavement, it might be something to try.

Don't forget the Kenda Kwest 28-451 (100PSI) available in wire and folding bead, The folding bead version is like hen's teeth to find, no longer in the Kenda Katalog. And I didn't go crazy with the "k"s, that's just the way they spell things over at Kenda.


My gas is up to $0.99 a burrito, $5.99 for premium and I'm only getting 10 miles to the regular burrito. Dang $0.99 burritos are smaller now.

irc roadlite, 200grams, about 25 mm wide light and fast, just not on bad roads. No anti puncture what so ever. Old type compound, tough but not grippy.

Primo comet, up to 30 mm wide( 37 mm indicated)Similar compound. Lasts long with and without kevlar.

Schwalbe Stelvio, 28 mm wide bit heavier almost 300 gram. Modern and grippy compound. Antiflat.

id go for the schwalbe.

I've put a lot of miles on IRC Roadlites and Primo Comets, but I don't know if they are still available.

I have been satisfied with Schwalbe. One use to be able to find a list of suppliers on this site.
