I attempted to do the Ben 10 Eco challenge last week.

My 2006 ran perfectly but inner tube failures cost me to much time and I could not complete.

I am going to convert my wheels to Mousse run flat tubes.
Front 90/90 - 21 Easy to source
I am having trouble finding any in 17" for the rear.

Does anyone know where I can start looking for one ?

I have done a quick search on the internet and have found no hits.

Have you considered going tubeless on your rear? It will be lighter, run cooler, can seal itself (if you add sealant) and is easy to fix if you do get a puncture.

Worth it in my opinion.

Hi DE,

As Piet said the tubeless conversion works great. I had mine done at Cyteck in the south of JHB and am very happy with the results. ;)
