Great tire for light off reading with a road bike

I wanted an off road tire last fall for a Rail Trail Cancer benefit ride and I wanted to use my Dad's old 3 speed Ross as a tribute to him as we lost him to Cancer in 09 . I was very happy with the tires performance and have actually been riding the bike quite a bit for quick hops around town and they are holding up well . They are slightly bigger than the old 1 14 tires that came off . They were a little tricky to get the bead uniformly seated around the rim but I think it's the old chrome wheels more than the tires . I'm going to get another set for my old Miyata back road tourer.

Great Gravel Bike Tire

Bought a pair of these to convert my old 27 road bike to a gravel bike. These tires ride great and handle the dirt and gravel roads in my area with ease. They were easy to mount and I'm running approximately 45 psi in them which gives me a great ride, no pinch flats and plenty of traction. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to convert a cross or gravel bike and you can't beat the price.

Perfect training tire for Saltzman Road!

This tire is cheap enough that I don't have to worry about road usage to get to the fire roads. Once on the trails the tread pattern is knobby enough that I rarely had my backend slide out on tougher sections. Great tire for the price.

Nothing Fancy, but

Great budget tires for any vintage bike restoration. It's easy to install, and the 70psi max provides a soft ride. These stay on straight side rims at 70psi no problem. In light snow or dirt these tires bite while smoother tires skid.

Cons After 500 miles of mostly pavement riding, my rear has about 13 of tread left. The gum sidewalls also crack easily when exposed to the sun. Being a basic tire it doesn't have puncture protection, so I'd recommend a tire liner andor thorn resistant tube. Gum sidewalls can also be uneven around the tire.

Overall wonderful tire for the price. They're perfect for commutes that have a section of dirt, or for winter commuting. Tread life is not a major issue thanks to the tire's low price.

Great budget trail and cyclocross training tire

I've used these on my cross bike during the off season for two years now. They're great for general trail riding and can handle a decent amount of pavement without wearing down. The pattern is a classic and the width is a happy medium all of which gives good purchase on most non paved surfaces. Even if you do wear them out riding to the trail head, the price is such that they can be replaced without too much pain. Most tires branded for cyclocross are race oriented with folding beads and soft compounds and are just too expensive to train on, or use for mixed terrain commutes. Now, the Kendas are kind of heavy, but spinning them all summer will just make you faster in the fall.

Bottom line is...

Pros inexpensive, durable, decent off-road

Cons heavy

Perfect for mixed terrain commuting, cyclocross training rides, gravel path bicycles

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.

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.

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 $.

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.
