Hi On the hunt for Schwalbe City Jets , I have come across a few sets for sale, the front 12" city jet is still available and keeps popping up on EBay at bargain prices, it's the rear one that I believe are getting as rare as hens teeth. I am hoping to receive a few sets this Friday if my supplier is true to his word, I have bought all of the rear tyres he had available. I am hoping to have 3 sets for sale after I have taken what I need. I can pass these on at £35.00 + p&p a set if anyone is interested. Regards Mick

Hi Chas Thanks for the warning, are the tyres from a place in Hampshire. Without doing my maths , I would say the good ones are with blue/white writing. Mick
