Hello,
Friend of mine is in NY now (coming back to EU on Friday this week), and I would like to ask him to buy for me Maxxis tires (not available here in Poland).
He is located in Manhattan/Brooklyn.
Can someone please point me to the the shop where the Maxxis tires (29er) are available:
  • Maxxis Ikon 29er Tire (520 gr)
  • Maxxis Aspen 29er eXCeption Tire (520 gr)

I did try to find a dealer with these tires via Maxxis website, but was not succesful after a few calls .....

Thanks for any advice - cheers !

He's asking for a local (NYC) source to cut down on customs and shipping fees. He didn't ask for a web link. Can we help a brother out?

That's nice, but....

What are the odds of finding in stock 29"er Maxxis Aspen and Ikons in Manhattan and Brooklyn in less than 24 hours time?

Now if his friend had been in Denver or Minneapolis or Madison or Portland....maybe the odds would improve.

Well you might try posting the same question here for a local look?

Too bad the time is running short... I have one of each sitting waiting for spring/summer to come! I could have overnighted them to your buddy and just replaced them much easier than you can get them....

Folks, thanks a lot for the effort :) The time is gone, so I need to find another opportunity.
BTW its interesting that there is not much shops that have such stuff available at hand.
I did call some of them, but didn't find even one with these Maxxis tires in stock.

The other issue is that I called Speedgoat (so Internet shop), and they cannot guarantee/check the weight prior to order. So its a lottery what you will get. I did experienced this with Schwalbe Rocket Rons, that are claimed at 520 gr, and came at 560 and 580. So I wanted to buy the Maxxis in a store, and weight them first.

Can you advice me: how/where to order them in the Internet shop (typically shipping is free in the US). I can then shipped them to someone traveling to my place.

Knottshore: this is very kind of you, much appreciated. Maybe next time ;)
