Anyone tried a Shinko SR241?

They do one narrow enough to fit my 1.4 wide wheels, but not sure if I'll be able to find any in NZ

SR241 is PPSC tyre of choice, i find them the best value for money dual sport tyre available. They are quite soft but they go really well on small bikes. SR244 is also a good option, bit of a beefier knob.

It was probably the most common tyre on last year's ride. I ran a 3" SR241 in the front and it was great.

Yeh quite a few peeps run them, myself included. Pretty quick wearing as they are soft but cheap enough and no complaints.

Hi people. 

I like tyres and can get all of them. 

Whilst SR241's are a mad dog tyre (and can definitely fit a 1.4 wheel - main issue is fitment between forks and/or guards) There are other options available. Well there is one option. 

You can get these:

eyJidWNrZXQiOiJ3ZWItbmluamEtaW1hZ2VzIiwia2V5IjoiYXdhcmRcL2ltYWdlc1wvcHJvZGltZ1wvMTc0M18xLmpwZyIsImVkaXRzIjp7InJlc2l6ZSI6eyJ3aWR0aCI6NzAwLCJoZWlnaHQiOjcwMCwiZml0IjoiaW5zaWRlIiwid2l0aG91dEVubGFyZ2VtZW50Ijp0cnVlfX0sInZlcnNpb24iOiI5MzhhNGI1Mjk2MjdjNWRkMzAyNWFkZmE0OGQ0MDQ1YjljYzU0MjBhIn0=

Available in 2.50/2.75/3.00x18. 
Also available in 2.50/2.75/3.00x18

Also soz. But the NZ supplier will only have a couple of SR241's till later this month because I just ordered most of them.

TOP TIP: Use heavy duty 17" tubes for max non flat tyres.

For onselling from your shop? do they carry the 2.75 wide version in NZ?

I'm pretty sold on the SR241 for the sexy styling.

In 17" the only size they carry is the 2.75x17. The ones coming to us are all accounted for. 

2 in stock with the supplier still so if you use these guys (they tap directly into the suppliers stock level) you should be able to get a pair.

Mine are 18".

Have already emailed those guys so will wait to hear from them.

They are GC's to deal with. 

Also I keep needing to remind myself that this isn't happening next week and there is plenty of time. But as my 2 yr old daughter says: "assoiiiiiiited!!"

Bugger, totally missed the 18 part even though I just talked about it a few comments above. 2.75 + 3.00x18 are both listed as 'indent' with the supplier, meaning they've made a provision to get some next shipment but don't have them yet.

Supposedly (fingers crossed) they will come into stock after 21/07/2020. So keep at it. Maybe tentatively order with that shop? If they can't help then get at me.
