Just to add to what Peter said there were a few nicer touring/rough-stuff style bikes made with the EA-3 sized tires and someone made some nice alloy rims in this size at one time too. A new question, did anyone except the British use this size very much? I know lots of folks used it for their "town" bikes, but did any makers outside of England use it for their "performance" bikes? thanks, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives In misty foggy Santa Barbara, Calif. ++++++++++++++++++++ Nobody can do everything, but if everybody did something everything would get done. --Gil Scott-Heron-- ++++++++++++++++++++
