Had no problem installing the tires. Have been riding the bike on mostly paved road and sometimes gravel near the beach for only 2 months. These are the right tires for an old mountain bike and paveddirt road. I love the color too.
I honestly wasn't sure how these would handle graveldirt riding on a loaded bike, but they worked! no problems going through some pretty rough stuff. I also use them for daily city commuting.
I bought 2 of these to replace the 2 old white wall 2 inch wide tires on my cruiser that kept picking up thorns. I ride 1.5 miles to work with a short portion on dirt. This fall the weeds dropped those grass burs all over the place. So far I have picked up 1 or 2 thorns that did not puncture the tube. I am running 95 psi with tubes that have sealant. I am very happy I was tired off repairing flats every night.
Colors Bright matches factory Blue Hues. Great traction easy to clean up. Can run 50lbsup hard 90lbs.Sidewall construction well made, Roundy cornering in wet is pretty good,. Finger on, no levers, easy good looking replacement. Reasonable Priced for a colored tire. Low Profile compared to a 1.95x26.Awesome price.
Have about 100 miles on it now for a Tandem bike. Nothing to complain about. Good traction, holding its own despite the heavy loads. Higher PSI def works better for these type of usage.
