Time for the Knobbies to go
Called my LBS shop and they have a nice hybrid tire same the local police use for my mountian bike to replace my 2 1/4 knobby tires ,
it has a center strip without tread and a little tread on the shoulder with a rather puncher resistant tire.
He says my bike will be much faster.
Sounds Pretty cool.
I had a rather ruff ride today 15 MPH winds in the face first several miles and then I crossed over to my return trek all down wind and man was I flying for a CD over 57 y/o.. whoooo
My tires were humming like those tires on a 4wheel drive truck.. hehe
Scared a few DUCKS by the lake a block away...
Geeze no wonder my hands are numb..
Serfas Drifter City Tire - 26 x 2.0
Well we went with a differnt tire
went for a good ride on my new tires, they roll nice in the grass, and really are quiet and smooth on the road. .
The LBS says they are what they put on the local Police Bikes and rarely see flats.
Turn your mountain bike into a city cruiser with the Drifter tire.
Integrated armor casing delivers first-rate puncture resistance
Super hard 69-durometer rubber compound for enhanced tire wear
Inverted tread design reduces rolling resistance for more speed
I asked how long they last and he said very long.
Ps I paid 24.00 a tire plus instal I found them on sale here if you would like a couple.
