Good economical tire
I replaced some Kenda gum walls on my 1984 Schwinn Le Tour Luxe with these tires in the spring. I probably have about 500 miles on them. They were very hard to mount and I had to use a lot of soapy water and pump them up to seat them on the old Belgium Weinmann rims. But they are wearing well and give a great ride. They may not be the fastest rolling tire but they grip the road well and smooth out the bumps. They mount wider than the 1-1/4" width and measure out at 1-3/8". Luckily the old touring bike geometry has no issue with the width. I may try the 1-1/8"width when I replace these.
