Hello ruari, Wow, thanks of the follow up information. I followed up on your links. Kings is now sold out. VeeTire suppoort is great, they tracked down a USA retailer for me, www.bicyclebuys.com , but the cost at $179 (search for 0602280 at the site) has me waiting for restock at unicycle.com .

Meanwhile, rotate your tires guys!

Ah that is a shame. I bought a KG Ultimate myself on the 9th. Maybe I got the last one.

FWIW, it cost me 120.59€ which is $141.59🇺🇸 according to xe.com.

The website claims the Ultimate (which is the lighter version) is still available. Did you only look at the older (heavier) KG?

My apology to ruarl, I misspoke, The actual story is that I contacted qu-ax.de (sellers of the King George Tyres from QU-AX), they do not ship to the US “since shipping to there was extreme long and uncertain (1/5 parcels got lost), or very expensive by UPS (around 80/90 Euros)”.

Looks to me that qu-ax.de does ship nearly everywhere else, and like ruarl said, they currently have stock.

Ah thanks for the clarification as that might be useful to someone else.

Rather long shipping time compared to UDC UK. I ordered one anyway.

Isn’t your collection big enough already? You must be rivalling UDC these days! :laughing:

I want to have a spare 36’er tyre. I recently ripped the side wall of a Nightrider Lite. I tried to repair it, but it didn’t last.

I am no longer looking for the tire. Unicycle.com USA has them in stock, and I ordered one.

If you have time, could you tell me about your experience with the nightruder lite?

I like the NR Lite for the most part. Turning and climbing is easier with the Lite than the regular NR. A lighter tyre made up for the power I lost when I went to shorter cranks. The sidewalls are thin, and can rip pretty easy (as happened to me), so now I try to keep away from sharp rocks etc. However, riding on a flat even surface with the regular NR is great. More stable. After getting used to NR Lite, I got the chance to ride a uni with a regular NR on Venice Beach and El Mirage Lake, and it felt great (sweet pre pandemic memories). Like all NR tyres it picks up a lot of pebbles which I find annoying.
