I restore vintage road bikes and these tires are one of my first choices.

I have a hobby, I restore Vintage Road Bikes. It is a passion of mine. I love taking bikes that are on no use to people and making not only useful about loved again. So I'm always looking for good tires at a good price. I have put many, many Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tries on the bikes I restore. They look good and last a long time. Rarely if never do have people coming back to me to complain about the tires.

Thanks Bike Tires Direct for making this product available at a good price.

Be careful - this is a beaded tire and will not work on all 27 rims.

I was buying a new tire to refurbish my old 80's road bicycle. I was unaware of beaded versus non-beaded tire construction. Is this something new? Anyway my new beaded tire did not work on my straight walled rims. I donated it to the Earn-a-Bike charity where I volunteer. The tire was well make and had substantial tread. I'm sure someone's will get a fine new tire in the near future.

excellent mileage and value

I'm a casual rider, about 10-15 milesday on level ground in san diego. no off road at all. the vittoria's seem to repel glass very well and I'm getting a year's worth of mileage from them. I replace them well before any corethreads appear. good value.

Great tire choice for 27 rims

I went with the 1 18 size after reading reviews about the 1 14 version being a little large and was not disappointed. The tire did go on a little tight, but with the proper tire levers, it was perfectly doable on 1982 Araya alloy rims. The directional tread has a nice feel, with some shoulder texture and the rolling resistance feels minimal. There are not many choices for 27 rims anymore, but Bike Tires Direct sells several and this seems to be a good and very reasonably priced choice.

Excellent tires

I put these on my vintage road bike for daily commutes to work. At 100 miles in they are still handling very well and gave me no trouble fitting the 1x14 inch tire to the rims.

Very tight fit ... almost returned tires ... but ...

With some quick research, on youtube ... search 'How to Fit a Marathon plus Tyre' and also, 'How To Remove A Tight Tire Easy'. About 45 minutes first time & frustrated. After video tutorials & practice, about 5 minutes average time.I bought a set of 1-18 inch size. I am casual rider & can generally tinker with bike mechanics. I am guessing the tight fit tires that some have experienced may depend on subtle differences of the rim specifications (width, side height, etc.)

This is my first somewhat 'road style tire' for my vintage bike. They sure feel faster & light compared to my other clunkier 27 inch tires with heavier treads. To Bike Tires Direct ... please continue to offer variety of 27 inch tires for us vintage bicycle owners!

Low rolling resistance and good road ride

Mainly recreational use on back roads. Tires replaced original Raleigh-branded gumwalls that were cracking. Vittorias installed easily on my old Raleigh Technium 440 with Araya 27x1 14 rims. Hand pressure only, no tire irons needed. No defects in materials and with proper installation, both tires spin true. Seems to be a very well made tire and when pumped to 100 psi gives good, responsive ride with low rolling resistance. Cornering traction much better than my older tires, giving more confidence in the turns. I chose the 27x1 18 size which is still fairly high volumeprofile compared with the old tires. Glad I didn't order the 27x 1 14. The tread pattern is directional, so check the sidewall for proper rotation direction when installing! The ride and rolling resistance are very dependent on pressure, more than I experienced on previous tires, so I agree with Team USA that inflating to 100 lbs each time is the way to go. Very happy so far and very impressed with the speedy delivery from BTD. Highly recommend.

Great tire, great price

I've used this tire on many vintage bikes for a updated ride and look over gum wall tires. The 1 18 wide size has worked best for me to replace 1 14 gum walls.

Hard to mount

I found these tires extremely difficult to mount. As a result I would not feel comfortable using them on a ride any distance from home since remounting after a flat repair would be difficult.

Moderately priced tire that is fairly durable and performs well on my road bike

Have purchased this model tire for several years for my 27 inch Raleigh 10 speed which I still have from the mid 70s. It fits well on my original front wheel and the replacement back wheel which has a slightly different rim. Can be pumped up to a high enough pressure for a good road bike ride.

Good tires for my vintage road bike

Overall price and performance are good for these tires. It's getting harder to find 27x1-1/4 tires and tubes. Glad these are available and reasonably priced.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments

Hi,

Thanks for your review! I'm glad we were able to help you out with these 27" tires. As far as tubes, rubber is pretty stretchy, and a 700x28/32 tube will work fine with your 27x1-1/4 tires!

Thanks,
Stacia
