Very Good Product and Very Low Price

I needed new tires for my 30 year old Motobacane bicycle. After an internet search I found that Biketiresdirect.com offered the best 1 1/4 X 27" product and price. I purchased two tires, two tubes and two rubber liners. They installed easily and have given me excellent performance.

Great tire...if you're lucky.

Bought these tires for winter riding in Chicago and they fit perfectly on old steel 27 wheels (1.25 width) Great tires for the price except that you may get a defective one. I bought 2 and one of them is NOT round. In other words, there is a low side on the wheel when properly inflated so every time your ride, there's an annoying and repetitive bump. Definitely a manufacturing error. The one that is round works great and the tread is very grippy. Rides very well in snow.

I was thinking of returning the wheel but at the price it wasn't worth going through all the trouble. Plus, I wasn't sure I'd get another good tire or bad. So, I live with the bump in my tire until I change them out in the spring.

Just great for snow and gravel.

At close to 130 miles of daily commute the tires are showing normal ware. I have now ridden through the winter with them on and have been very happy with the grip. The trade off is that you gain a little rolling resistance from your true road tires. I have a lot more turning confidence riding on wet and snowy days. All and all a great deal and no complaints about the install either. Make sure you follow the instructions and take some time to get them setting on the rims right.

They did not fit. Don't know what the problem is

I don't know what the problem was - they did not fit but the rim size is the same as the tire?

Plenty of grip and durable.

Put on an old road bike to ride the local bike bath, which is crushed stone. They work great. plenty of grip and they are durable enough to take the bumps of riding the trail.

An unhearalded winner

Though this tire is ostensibly a commuter tire, i use it as a combo fireroad/offroad tire. It rolls passibly and gets impressive traction.If it has an achilles heel it might be where the steel bead is clinched beneath the chafer. In short,the Most utilitarian tire, for its size i've used.

Perfect tire for my rainy weather bicycle.

I live in the rural part of Washington state where, this time of year, it is wet and there are leaves and fir needles on the road. I picked up an old Schwinn Continental and made it into my bad weather rider. These tires are perfect. Just enough tread to grip the treacherous road but not to big to require a lot of effort to roll along at a decent speed.

Great Off Road Value!

like many other buyers I went looking for an off road tire for use on a vintage touring bike (27 wheels). I am used to paying big $$ for my road bike tires and almost passed on these due to their VERY LOW price. On my touring bike I have now used these tires on single track during the weekly local MTB group, on paved and cinder rail trails, and across our back yard. They still look like new. They work best on grass and on rough but solid single track. Like another review noted, these tires are WAY too narrow for the sidewall size marking. Although marked as 37mm width they are close to 30mm in width. Due to the narrow width they didn't give much stability when cycling through cinders and I had to inflate them more than I wanted when doing single track.

In spite of the narrow width these tires are a steal for the $.

Great tires for my cross bike.

For the dollar these are great for my cross bike. Spend most of my time on these on light trails and dirt roads. Reasonable rolling resistance on pave roads as well.

Perfect for the bike

My sister was wanting treaded tires for her Fuji road bike in order to feel more safe on the road and bike paths in the area. So I found these and they are great. For treaded tires on a road bike, they ride smooth and comfortable. The fit for the bike is awesome.

So far so good

These are a nice quick upgrade. I ride on the green belt in Boise, and the path is a lot bumpier than a street. So these worked out great - much smoother comfier ride for bumpy streets.

Good tire, good value, but really measures 27 X 1 18 - 29mm&41, not 27 X 1 38 - 35mm&41

I have an old 27 wheel touring bike I am re-purposing as a gravel grinder bike, and wanted to fit a wider than 1 14 knobby tire. The Kenda appears to be a well made tire and good value, but when mounted to an 18mm inside width rim, it barely measured 1 18 (29mm)across the sidewalls. It was actually narrower than the 27 X 1 14 Continental touring tire I am using now. Good tire, good value, but really measures 27 X 1 18 (29mm), not 27 X 1 38 (35mm)

Narrower than the spec says

I am looking to turn an old 27 wheel tourer into a gravel grinder. This tire is labeled 27 X 1 38 (35-630). When mounted to a 19mm (inside width) rim, the tire measures only 29mm wide. So it is really a 27 X 1 18 tire. I bought a Club Roost Cross Terra, and it measures 34mm, nearly a true 27 X 1 38.

A great inexpensive cross tire. Not neccessarily for racing, but for riding local trails . Sidewalls stay clean!

I use these tires on a vintage road bike that has lots of clearance for wide tires. I live in an area where there are a lot of dirt paths and non-technical trails. These tires are perfect! And the best part is the nylon sidewalls are really easy to clean, so they look new all the time!

Best winter city commute tires

Great tire for dealing with city streets in winter. Just enough grip for wetsnowy days, not too clunky for dry days. Not quick enough for year round city commuting, but won't hold you back if you wait till April to switch 'em.

Great Tires for winter commuting

When I moved to Erie, PA from Florida, I had no car and was a little worried about commuting through the winter. Erie is known for it's lake effect snow, and last winter we got over 100 inches. I bought these tires, put them on an old ten-speed converted to a single speed, and rode everyday through the winter without any problem. Never fell once. These tires are skinny enough to cut through small snow piles, and were great for riding on the road. Off road, or on unplowed roads, they did okay, as long as there was less than 4 inches of snow, any more than that, and it got pretty hard to ride. Basically, wherever a car with snow tires could drive, I could ride.

Excellent tires

I've been through three sets of these tires and highly recommend them. I stored my biked outside for two years with a set of these tires. Right as I embarked on a 70 mile rail-trail ride I noticed that the UV damage to the side walls was so severe that they were flaking off. I feared the whole ride that I was going to blow both tires but never did. Great product, great price.
