Dime size gravel is pushing it ????

So far...150 or so miles on a 100cc 2-stroke equipped '99 Magna. Whether it's tarmac or dime-size gravel country roads. At 30-40mph the gravel is giving you a slight squiggle in the rear. WEEEE!!!

Rides really well and does not feel like it requires more effort than the slick tire it replaced!

In south west Florida the trails are asphalt with areas covered with sand, so far I have not had any instances where the tires have failed to maintain their grip. Also, property owners are required to provide the sidewalks, but many are grandfathered out of the requirement and it is good to have some tread to navigate the sand paths that result. The reflective strip is also asset considering the lack of streetlights. Instalation was a snap and the product's quality is obvious.

Great tires at a great price!

I'm converting an old mountain bike into a city commuter and the first thing to go was the knobbies. BTD had a good selection at a better price than other sites I could name, and delivery was fast.

I Love these Tires!

I love these tires. They are reasonably light for the size, the tread design is excellent, they roll as smooth as silk, and they are super round! The reflective side stripe not only provides a safety benefit, but looks super sharp as well.

Great! Converting MTB to a city commuter

Shipped sooner than expected, which only meant one last ride on the old knobbies to buy tubes. They installed easy enough, speed and weight improvements are noticeably favorable. Pleasantly surprised by the reflective sidewall strips! Today I'll get to check their performance in the rain!

Sturdy, but at cost

This has a well designed thread pattern for "go every where" purpose. I bought a pair to be used as my city bike. The writings on the wall of the tire indicate the tire is designed for e-bikes, which, in theory, should not make any difference in fit and use. I believe the designers had sturdiness in mind with thicker tire material to resist puncture. However, the sturdiness came at a cost... its weight. This may not matter much on an e-bike which you don't need to worry too much about pedaling, but it does to a regular bike to some degree if you are someone like me...a picky person. I just thought there was big difference between the one I was replacing with this one. Otherwise, it should give a long tread life. I also like its reflective side wall stripes.

Perfect for Commuting

I put the 1.6 tires on my commuter bike. They were about the same size as the 1.75 tires they replaced. Very easy to mount, not too tight, but no slop. Perfect size, and obvious quality. The price was a terrific value, too. Reflective strip looks great and a huge plus for safety. Fast and smooth rolling. Totally happy with these tires!

excellent customer service

I needed new tires after a blow out on my front tire , I ordered these tires ,but was having a hard time getting them on the rim correctly . these tires have a reflector strip and it was clear that the stripe wasn't even . I didn't have any experience with changing tires , so I thought maybe I ordered the wrong tire for my rims . I called the help line and someone answered on the first ring. Unbelievable . In a few minutes the technician assured me the tires were correct and told me what I was doing wrong. Problem solved . I have over 300 miles on them with no problems .Good traction on hard gravel bike path and I was surprised how well these rolled compared to my old tires

Great Tires

The tires are great - just what I wanted, but most important was that I had doubts about the fit and the ordering support I got on the phone was outstanding.

A great tire for around town and gravel biking

Bought these tires for my 'town bike', which I've since converted to a gravel bike (by switching out the handlebar & adding panniers). Just did the 109 mile gravel bike tour of the Michelson Trail in South Dakota. The tires did great on the packed gravel surface!

Rugged, well built tire

Great tread design and tough all around tire. Has a sharp look to it as well.

The one caveat is that the tires are quite a bit heavy. For a pure street bike, I'd look elsewhere. But if you spend considerable time on pavement and in light gravel, these are an excellent choice!

Great heavy city bike tire

This is a great heavy-duty city bike tire. I put a pair of the 1.6 tires on a bike for my parents, and I liked them so much I bought another pair for my around town bike. I also took them on a 15 mile gravel ride and they performed well on dry fire roads. The tread rolls quietly on pavement. The only down side is that the tires are quite heavy and it gives the bike a slightly sluggish feel compared to a racing tire, but hopefully it will make up for that in puncture resistance.

Excellent around town and good on dirt and gravel.

I purchased these tires for my sons bike and his rides to school, the park, and the Dollar Store and taco Bell. All are about 1.5 miles away and mostly paved with some dirt and gravel. He could not be happier with them and they seem to be lasting extremely well.

Really good tires, great deal.

Im getting back into cycling at 58. These

tires can be pumped up to 80 psi. Which gives me the most production for my efforts. They handle great (black top) ride nice, good service. Five stars.

Great tire for my pedal assist roadtrail bike.

I wanted a narrower tire for my pedal assist electric bike that would work well on both roads and rail trails. I had been using a 1.75 inch width mountain bike tire that was wearing out and I wanted something lighter but still substantial and a little wider than a 1.5 inch tire. This is it. The extra width and tread pattern have worked out great for my recreational rides each week. I can ride on the flat with the motor turned off and use less power for many of the hills in the area to enure I get good exercise. At the same time, I can always ride, even if I am a little tired or under the weather or face steeper hills since I can crank up the pedal assist whenever I want.

Seems like a great tire for gravel riding.

Don't have much experience with it yet but it seems to roll pretty well on pavement and still give good traction on gravel on a 26" hardtail MTB.

I like their size and the way they run on the crushed lime road, not terribly grippy but it gives you some warning on how far you can go on the wet road, so I like it!
