    Bridgestone Bike Tires.

    I PURCHASED ANOTHER BIKE THIS WEEKEND. and it has 27 x 1 1/4, bridgestone tires.
    im assuming that the tires are old because i cant find anything about bridgestone making bike tires.

    the tires look great.i just replaced the tubes and,put the tires back on. gumwall tires,look great.
    anybody know anything about BRIDGESTONE BIKE TIRES. good or bad.
    APPRECIATE your help folks.

    Bridgestone was a good brand back in the 80's and 90's. Just run them as long as you can amd inspect them periodically. You might be surprised as to how long they'll last.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Bstone is a huge, global company, makes millions of car and motorcycle tires and a bunch of other stuff. They imported bikes to the U.S. through the early '90s, I think. Grant Petersen, who founded and runs Rivendell, used to be their product manager or some title like that--he designed most of the bikes, in any case.
    THey still make bikes in Japan, and I'm pretty sure they still have bike tires, too. But they were never a huge power in the U.S.--Grant designed sensible, usable bikes and didn't do the "racer look" when everybody else did, and that was all anybody would buy. Can't remember when they pulled out (1994?). but I was sorry to see them go. My wife and I still have a Bstone 550 roadie and two mountain bikes, and they're still a pleasure to ride. That's the main reason I wound up buying my last two bikes from Rivendell. .
