Looking for 27" tiressalmonwheel

A while back I remeber a link posted for a shop selling decent 27" tires online, they were continentals I think. I went to the site that alkso had 5 and 6 speed freewheels, I can't remember the shop name, and I had no luck searching the archives does anyone know of such a shop or someplace else I could get decent 27" tires.
Nashbar has 'em in the new catalog.cory

Getting harder to find, but most bike shops still have a few in stock. Nashbar has a pretty wide selection of 1-inch, 1 1/8 and 1 1/4--their house brand (which is fine) plus some Panaracers, Contis and Vittorias. If you don't see what you want, check the online catalog--sometimes it lists stuff they don't put in the print one.
Nashbar or REITrent in WA

I have Panaracer Paselas 27 x 1 1/4 (I bought them at the LBS, but Gnashbar sells them) and love them. I can't comment on their longevity, since I just put them on, but they're much grippier than the crappy Kenda's that came on my bike. REI also has a few kinds of 27", including Conti 1000's and (I think) Gatorskins.
