Hi,

I need to order some bike parts (rear derailleur, brake pads etc) and want an EXO or DD casing DHF 27.5x2.5WT in 3C compound but I cannot find them in stock on the usual suspects (CRC, bike-discount.de, bike24.de etc).

Anyone know a site that has them in stock?

This is so weird, it's been nearly impossible to find these buggers since I started looking in June. I had to to buy from Germany to get a DHF 27.5x2.5 DH Super Tacky.

Also Maxxis was supposed to launch their folding bead DH casing 27.5 Minion DHF/DHR II this summer and nada. I tried contacting Maxxis email and didn't get a response.

Jenson showing Sept 21 for EXO and in-stock for DoubleDown -- thanks schyawn.

Nice, thanks for the links. Debating if I want to go DD as my trail riding is more trail than endurobro. EXO has held up fine for my purposes especially in the front... not that I am a huge weight weenie.

I was working on my 29er project tonight and while mounting the front tire I noticed it's a WT version , granted it's a 29er .I thought I would pass along the shop I purchased it through . I bought it at Kinetik In Coquitlam , they have a killer selection of parts .

I picked up a set of 27.5 tires 2.4 dhr2 wt and dhf 2.6 both 3c.   Dunbar had them in and matched another sites price.  Great tires at a good price from a local shop.  What's not to like.

Will they price match in person in store, or online? Don't want to be a dick to them in store, but that would be great if they will match TBS and I can grab em in person?

They matched in the store to price shown online.  Item had to be in stock and same product.  He also said the DB Cycle Online store might be lowering the spend amount before free shipping.  Looks like they are really working to complete as a LBS and online store.  It is good to have options like this and the guys in the shop have always been friendly and helpful.  I don't always ask for a better price, but with the tires I had seen the online price and was going to go that route but thought I would stop at DB Cycle on the way home to see what they might have in stock.  Glad it did.

NOTE:  I have no affiliation to DB Cycles, but have purchased some gear from them now that they are more centrally located on Broadway.
