What local shops carry the GoldenTyre / Shinko 216 fatty fronts in 2021?

 

Would like to support some local business, Thanks!

Clairemont Cycle Supply may have them in stock, or they will order for you.

Is the Shinko less durable than the GoldenTyre?

 

Online reviews seem to hint that but I trust real world SDAR reviews more.

C&D is out of the Golden as well. Steve is hoping for an order in about a week.

I got about 25 hours out of the Shinkos and the side knobs were tore badly.

I have 50 hours on a newer Golden. Side knobs are not tearing off. Just wore out from riding slab. To me the Golden is worth the extra $50.
