Wow bike tyres are *expensive*.

I was expecting maybe £20 a pair - more like £20 EACH.

Local stores don't have anything close to what I wanted.
They only really had:
* Generic mountain bike tyre.
* Generic road bike tyre.
* 'Hybrid/city tyre'

I wanted something like a touring/mild-gravel tyre.
Mostly road use + hard-packed, dry gravel use.

I've ended up buying something that is a best-selller for exactly the purpose I wanted, but they're £22 a pop and *barely* available online.

Apparently they're considered a budget tyre, and if I wanted anything more serious it'd be like £40 a tyre.

The tyres on my bike are all cracked and old though, so I really should get new ones.
