The MT21 I saw was in Coban, but I think of the 5-6 bike shops we toured, it was the only 120/130/140 - 18" tire. I wouldn't count on it still being there!

Didn't see (and didn't look for) a bike shop in Antigua or Quetzaltenango.

Guat City would be by far the best bet.

I'm starting to imagine South America Fall 2013..... maybe...
