27" tires - What & where?
I was given an old Raleigh roadie about a month ago, and finally got around to doing an initial strip & clean over the weekend. From my very quick research, it appears to be a mid-70's model with 27"x1.25" rims with Schrader valves.
Can someone recommend a good tire for these rims?
This bike will mainly just be a "for fun" bike & grocery getter. It doesn't need super-light race tires. Something middle-of-the-road with good comfort & puncture resistance would be just fine. (If it were a 700c rim, I'd probably get something like 700x25 Armadillos, or the like, to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.)
Anywhere have particularly good prices for these?
