1 used Enduro 3 FR in Cairo, or new set

Hi, you have limited options in Egypt as there no spare parts / tyres dealer really. However I trust some guys I occasionally ride with could accommodate (currently out of town most of them). PM to JamieT, cool and resourceful hubber based here in Cairo as well.

On my part, I have a used Met Sahara Enduro 3 mounted on my 2nd set of wheels, I could dismount and let go, it's about 50% gone so still good for 2500-3000 km. Rear is the same if interested. Got a brand new rear Sahara Enduro 3 waiting in line.

Currently on the bike I ride a new set of Dunlop 908 Rally-Raid, quite grippy in the front and too strong in the back for a light weight bike like my 640. Sort of a mismatch really, would definitely fit great a 950/990 or a loaded bike I guess, but I don't like personally, thus willing to remove the set and sell for cheap.

Other than that, I have imported a set of TKCs waiting for better times to ride. I could sell you the set if interested.

You could also contact KTM Egypt (ghost store in Cairo - Heliopolis) and a base in Sharm, they can certainly help you as well.

Ride safely coming into Egypt, I'd recommend to follow the Red Sea coast road as much as possible. /C
