      Comprende. I did not note the Oz location. I bet shipping costs from the USA would be ridiculous too. No chance of having the distributor include a pair as a special order in his next shipment from Schwalbe? Seeing as how most Schwalbe tires are now made in Asia shipment to you would be closer than to me I suspect.

        Hi Rich;

        I've been trying, I'm a co-owner of a bike store which sells a lot of
        Schwalbe tyres so hopefuly they'll come through.

        Mind you the I've punctured as many big apples as I have marathon+s

        Cheers

        Joel
