That is a bummer. Another option is get some one from EU to purchase for you and ship. I would be glad to do it but would be crazy expensive for you. Bought a $25 USD banner from a buddy in SA and it cost $125 to ship here.

I just looked up what it would cost to ship 2 tires to Baghdad from here, (Closest city they had in the drop down menu) $150 USD. I am thinking you should open a bike shop! lol
