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.

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.

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.

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!

great multi-use tire

I put these on my mtn bike for spring training rides before I get my road bike out. I ride on a trail system that is built on an old railway right of way. I ride a couple of miles on the road to get to the trail and these tires work equally well on pavement, gravel and packed dirt wet or dry. Not by any means for real mtn bike terrain but a great tire for combined road and easy off road use.

Unbelievable performance

I bought a new 30 speed MTB racing bike that came with Kendra 26X2.0 Small Block Eight tires. I immediately replaced them with these Continental 26X1.75 Ride Tour tires and the difference in performance is unbelievable. These Continentals are amazing. The ride is smoother, the bike is faster and the traction is unreal! I was looking for a good all around hybrid tire and these Continentals are more than I could ever have hoped for. I'm 100% satisfied. The quality is exceptional. Thank you Bike Tire Direct!

Rides nicely but tricky to mount.

I bought 2 sets of these, one to replace some 26 x 2.125 mountain bike tires and one to replace some treadless 26 x 1.6 tires. I definitely like how both bikes ride with them and definitely notice a reduction in rolling resistance compared to the old mountain bike tires. My only complaint was that I had difficulty getting the tire to seat correctly on the rim. When i first installed it part of the bead went down into the rim so the tires was out of round. Correcting took a few tries of deflating and inflating the tube while pulling on the low spot to get it right. I have never experienced that issue before even though I have taken the old tires on and off a number of times.

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!

Decent ride, versatile offon road. But hard to inflate - Presta valve plunger is quirky

I road commute everyday. These tires seem resilient but can't seem to hold air well. My tirewalls show a 102 max PSI, (85-to 102) so I'm suprised by the specs listed on this site.

Difficult inflating these. Unless I'm able to max out the pressure, the bike feels like its riding thru sand during inclines. Frustrating.

I recently tried injecting max air pressure using the Shrader adaptor.When I unscrewed the adaptor, the Presta-valve plunger popped out like cannon fire. Now I might need to replace the tube! Not that happy wtires overall.
