    Schwinn tire size question

    Last year I sold a 73 Schwinn collegiate to a nice local guy and I have kept in contact off and on. Recently the 26 x 1 3/8 Kenda tire became damaged and he needs to replace it. I cannot seem to remember what is special about the Schwinn S-6 rims.

    Bottom line, he wants to replace the tires with mountain bike tires. Are there any available for that bike?

    No. Collegiate's had 597 tires. 'Regular' 26" tires are 590.

    Assuming, by 'regular,' OFG means EA3/English 3-speeds. A 26" MTB tire is ISO 559, so a big difference in size.

    For S-6 tires, looks like you are limited to the usual Kenda/Sunlite S-6.

    Yes, exactly.
