i bought these tires for my 1984 Trek 560 because they are a cheap replacement that gives that vintage gumwall look. the 700c25 are slightly taller than the previous tires that were on my bike. they rub against the underside of the brake caliper so im not sure how to fix this rubbing without either deflating the tire significantly or pulling the rim down lower in the dropouts which causes slipping of the rim within the dropout. seeking an alternative
Use these for training and general riding my road bike. Bought them on sale, and for the money they are great. Comfortable and fairly quiet. A little squirm on high speed turns, but 28mm width good for even mild trail riding on my road bike.
Most of my 70's steel beauties are shod with these tires. Hundreds of miles on each with absolutely no problem. Makes it a lot easier to keep so many bikes rolling when you aren't spending $$$$ on tires that may be a little lighter but cost 5 X as much. Less $$ spent on tires more $$ for more restoration projects.
i bought these for about 10.00ea. which is a really great deal i think. i have them on my lighter faster set of wheels for when i am not touring. they are also pretty darn flat resistant i think, because the first 200 miles has been flat free and i have a pretty rough commute.
I purchased a set of these tires for a 1980 Peugeot Competition bike I have been restoring. The tires provide both the look and ride I was after for such a classic bike. They are an excellent value and provide a smooth ride on the bike. Highly recommend.
