Great improvement for beach cruiser, much faster, lower rolling resistance than stock
Bought an old 1980 Schwinn beach cruiser that still had the original tires on it. The blocky sand tread had a lot of resistance to rolling on sidewalks.
These tires made a huge difference in reducing the peddling effort and increasing my speed. When I have to go around pedestrians on the grass and sand here in Florida, they barely slowdown due to their width. The rounded tread area means that on hard surfaces there is minimal resistance. If you ride a bike with mountain bike tires on the sidewalk, you won't believe the difference.
The blue color even helped me recover my bike when it was stolen a week after I put these on. My neighbors spotted a kid showing his new bike off to friends from half a block away. The color is hard to miss.
I ride about 50 miles a week including to and from work and have been using these for several months, so far there is no sign of wear.
They are probably heavier than some tires, but with the flat terrain here that is not a problem. In fact the extra weight helps coasting and some of the slight downhill sections of my route to work.
I am planning on putting an electric hub motor on this bike soon and I think these will be great for that application.
Thank you for your feedback.
