Granular grip excellent for varying surfaces/conditions
I put these babies on a vintage/restored 12 speed that is almost 30 years old. I rode it on a 60 mile ride in scenic Hudson, KS last weekend and they performed flawlessly. Take note that these lack tread so if you're planning on riding in the rain these may not be the best choice of tire. That being said, I was zipping around others on the ride like a teenager on the way to first school dance. I was moving fast enough to "speed test" the tires and am happy to report they held up to such extreme speeds! A great deal for tires and did I mention how purty they look on my classic?!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
