Very satisfied. Be sure to check your ISO sizes.

I restore donated bikes and give them away. I recently received two old three speed bikes in good condition, one was a Schwinn. I couldn�t find any ISO size markings on the old tires, just a reference to a Schwinn S2 rim or something. I purchased 4 tires thinking they could satisfy the other bike too (Free Spirit Brittany - like an old 26x1 3/8 tire as well). These tires didn�t work for that bike, which required ISO 37-590 size tires.

Mounted these on the Schwinn bike just fine, pretty true to round and an excellent value. I�m glad they are still available for these vintage bikes.

Fun fact: Both these bikes were shot in a flashback to �60�s scene in a film coming out next year.

Quality tire. Fantastic price. fast shipping, and knowledgeable and friendly service !

This product was installed on a vintage Schwinn bike. I love the tire as anymore a 26x1 3/4 (S7) Schwinn tire is hard to find or purchase. As I am a vintage bike collector and rider, (BikeTiresDirect) handles Vintge Schwinn tires and their prices are lower than all other dealers I have checked with. Comments
That's so great to hear! Getting the correct size tires for those vintage Scwhinn wheels can be maddening, so it's great to hear when someone gets the right tire, glad we could help!

Fit well and easy to install.

Refurbished a Trek limited edition VW Jetta mountain bicycle. The rim strip hugged the wheel and will firmly stay in place.

Kenda Standard 700c Presta Valve Tube

Good Tube

I own a Specialized E-Bike and I had a tube failure. This was the closest fit that I found on BTD's website. I compared the tube to the failed original Specialized tube on the bike and it was very similar in build and weighed the same. The 700, 45-50 size is perfect for the 700, 47 sized tires on the bike. The threads on the Kenda tube Presta valve are 60 mm whereas the Specialized tire came with 40 mm long threads. It is a minor, visible difference.

The original tire failed I believe due to a faulty, removable Presta valve. The failure mode was explosion.

I intentionally sought a different brand of tube due to the failure even though I believe Specialized makes a great bike. The original tire was a 700, 32-50, 40 mm. Since Kenda's size was the narrow width band of 45-50 I'm hoping this may be helpful in avoiding another problem. So far, 2 months later no flats or problems.
