Hi. I am after some Schwalbe Nobby Nics (2008 version). Does anybody know the cheapest place to buy them. A little while ago I seem to remember that there were significant discounts to be had in online German shops but I cannot seem to find that thread now. Thanks.

    What's the difference between 2008 versions and earlier ones?

    I prefer the writing on the sidewall on the 2008 ones. I am not sure about any difference to the tread

    thanks for that link. I kept on trying and it just kept comingup with an under construction page. I don't know why I thought it had a '-' in the address

    Try this site just ordered a pair and took 5 days to come down, you can get different types, Tubeless, snakebite and double defense.

    double defense seem to be the better option less likely to get punctures.

    What size did you order? I am after some 2.1 non-tubeless type. I have noticed some websites are showing low stock on these. When the invoice came was it in German?

    Bike24 and Action Sports were the two websites I was looking for, I just couldn't remember the names as I hadn't visited them in a while. Bike24 has the edge at the moment.

    Just did the Bike 24 euro to pound conversion,and it works out at £54.96 delivered.
    Last time I was in Evans at Spitalfields I remember seeing the newer version on offer for £25.Might be worth a look on their website,to see if they still have the offer.If you want to use a UK based company, have 2 for £60.

    I managed to buy Nobby Nics for £50 the pair in cycle surgery about a year back and then I picked up a Racing Ralph for £25 on ebay.

    Excellent tyres but there`s no way I would pay full list price for them.

    Hi thanks for the information. I was unsure if Bike Plus were selling the 2008 model or not, although the price is good for a uk shop. Evans Cycles have the older Racing Ralphs in 2.1 for £25 which is good value. A few moments ago I ordered the tyres from Bike24. I will let you know when I receive them.

    Thanks again
  • I'd use Actionsports and get a few mates to buy stuff from them at the same time, so you can split the high delivery costs.

    Tyres arrived yesterday. This means they took three days to arrive. They cost £55.22. I am quite happy with the service. They tyres are new and in the proper boxes.
