Tires are priced to compete with the *ahem* internet AND you get an extra 20% off if you buy a pair (they don't even have to match).
Some of these tires were caught in a little springtime flood, so their packaging got damaged. And their price reflects that. Thankfully the tires themselves are made of rubber and not cardboard, so they're still good. Some of them were not in the flood, and they're still on sale.
Maxxis, WTB, Hutchinson, Ritchey. Good stuff. Oh, and they're all 26" (sorry 29ers...). Come in and check them out.
