Great Value, Great Tire

I absolutely love these tires, so much, in fact, i'm thinking of replacing the tires on my new bicycle with them. they perform great on city streets and paved trails, also a great choice for those who want to convert their mountain bikes to a more pavement friendly tread.

Amazingly tough tire - roles easy - corners smoothly - no flats - a bit on the heavy side.

Put these tires on a older 26" mountain bike that has been rebuilt as a gravel/urban bike with drop bars and no suspension. Roles easy, corners well, tolerates a wide range of tire pressures & absolutely no flats.

Unsung Heroes of bike tires

The early versions of this tire were hit and miss. They've always had a great ride but sometimes I found it impossible to get them to seat correctly and there would be a lump when you spun the wheel. The bigger the tire the worse the problem. ( 32 opposed to a 47 ) When they changed the name from Tour Ride to Ride Tour and added puncture protection I thought I would give them another try. I bought some 650 B 42's for my Rivendell Saluki and they mounted great. They spun perfectly. The ride is dreamy and buttery. Then I bought a set of 47s for my Rivendell Atlantis with 26 inch wheels. (559) Those mounted perfectly as well and spun straight. The ride was the same. Really nice and smooth. I would put these up against any Compass tire. I love compass tires. They have a delicious ride and I would highly recommend them but they're 80 bucks a tire. These are cheap and they handle mud really well which is a plus. Get the Ride Tour, you won't regret it.

First order

This was my first order placed and from the beginning everything was perfect. These tires were replacing the original tires I had on my MTB. The order came ahead of schedule and the tires were in excellent condition and packed perfectly. Incredibly easy to replace my old ones, and I couldn't believe the impact they made on my ride. I ride everyday to work and back home and I find myself wanting to be in the bike longer now because the ride is so clean and smooth. These are great

Long lasting, bullet proof (or at least broken glassproof) commuting tire.

6,000 miles so far. The nubs are worn off, but otherwise look new. No flats in spite of riding glassy roads and adjacent bike trails that haven't been swept in over a year.

Nice quiet urban tire that holds up well on light trails and wet surfaces.

These tires are nice quality for the money. They can be pressurized to 58lbs and grip well on everything ranging from tarmac to gritty light trails. They have nice siping slashes that channel water away too if you get caught in a rain-storm. They are super quiet and a nice replacement for nobby-tires If you want to convert your old mountain-bike to a townie and race about with ease. I haven't had any punctures yet, so they seem good in that regard as well.

Never get flats!

I first bought a set of 700C Tour Rides in 2015 and ran them on a set of wheels for commuting. Since then I have put them on another set of 700C wheels and run them on two old MTBs set up as commuters, renamed Ride Tour in that time. Not a single flat in ~7 years running these tires. As I write this they are still about $25 each - can't beat that either.

Tires out of round

I purchased 4 of these tires to replace knobby mtn bike tires for road use. 3 were fine. 1 was not. I called for an RMA and they were great with returning the item for a replacement. Got the replacement and it is out of round also. I did not call to return the second one, due to the turn-around time getting replacements.

It took 5 days transit for my bad one to get to them. They sent a replcement that also took 5 days transit weekends for a total of about 14-15 days. I just went to the local bike shop and bought 2 new (differen) tires for my wifes bike. Ill keep the one remaing good one for a spare.

My go-to commuting tire

A tire that works well on paved and unpaved roads, very smooth, quick on the pavement with great traction on the unpaved roads. Absolutely one of my favorite commuting tires that is a steal when on sale!

Use these on a vintage mid-90s Merlin Mountain setup for mixed riding, trails and roads. Smooth, low resistance riding on both surface types and have great grip on exposed roots.

As it says in the description, smooth ride but with enough grip to handle the off road and the rain with ease.

I use this product for commuting around the city and so far it has handled amazingly taking on potholes and shards of glass. The rain was not a problem with these tires and dealing with mud was no problem. Excellent for converting a mountaintrail bike into a hybrid!

good way to re-purpose old MTN Bike and recruit a new rider!

I have a neighbor that has been wanting to join me on my daily ride. He has an 80's era TREK MTN bike that sits in his garage on two flat and rotted tires. I've been coaching him on the benefits of a good ride but he doesn't want to spring for a new road bike unless he's sure he'll stay with it so we bought a set of these along with new tubes and rim strips and I do believe he is now a convert. I've always been a fan of Continental tires and was skeptical given the prices of these. They won't replace and of the GP models but for the price and for the intended goal they fit the purpose perfectly.

good way to convert mtb for street riding

One of my neighbors got inspired by seeing me ride daily, but only had an old TREK MTB in his garage. He didn't want to drop serious $$ on a serious road bike until he decided he wanted to stick with it. We dusted it off the old TREK, and tuned it up then added these tires. I admit I'm a fan of Continental tires, but for the $$ wasn't going to get too excited. But they are well made and were easy to mount. 50psi they roll nicely I got another person riding his bike and enjoying it.

Very good urban tire

Needed new shoes for my Trec Navigator - a somewhat upright urban bike. My criteria was good brand, good looks and good durability. These are a strong 1.75 wide and look perfect. Last ones were 1.5 and looked too small on this comfort type bike. About 500 miles last month and only had to air up once to keep at 52 psi.

Awesome bike tires for my motorized bike!!!

I just recently converted my old school 1993 Trek 970 Mountain Bike into a motorized bike. I needed some quality tires with Kevlar lining in them. I live in the Southwest desert of the USA and we have thorns and stickers that will give you a flat even with Slime in the tires. I have been using these tires for over a month now and no more flats. I highly recommend these tires. Thanks for reading and have a good day....

Great value for the price.

We use these tires on two of our around town riders, grocery-getter bikes. They replace the old knobbies which were literally a drag. Looking forward to putting miles on these tires and not the car tires!

Good tires

I bought these a couple months ago now, have put a few hundred miles on them. All paved bike trails and street riding. No flats yet.

They roll a lot better than the MTB tires I replaced with them. Cant really complain. Im by no means a bike tire aficionado, but for the money they seem great.
