  1. Great purchase, will probably last a very long time! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2015

    I bought this combo for a Japanese vintage bicycle that I have to ride around town every once in a while. These tires add a great vintage effect due to their gumwall and have the great characteristic of having amazing grip with that chunky thread. The rim strips and the tubes are very nice quality, they seem quite durable. I'm very pleased with the purchase, specially because it was so hard to find tires to suit my old bike, until I found these.

  2. Good Choice of Tires for 27 inch wheel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2014

    First day out with these tires was just this weekend (03/09/14, when a group of us hit completed about a 30 round trip. The tires look great on my old Univega Mixte. They are very comfortable over ruts, bumps and general road imperfections. Also, no significant slowing down due to the knobby tread.
