650 tires

Where are you getting them? I'm down to Ebay but I hate that whole auction thing. Nashbar had some closeouts for 7 bucks a piece. I bought 4 shoulda bought 50.

I love this bike but may have to think selling it for something with 700s unless I can find a good supply of 650s that aren't 50 bucks a pop.

Do a search for Kenda Koncept. Many places sell the wire bead for around 15 and the folding for about 25.

Thanks.

Have you used those? The cheap ones I got were Kendas and the tread was soft as butter and they didn't last long as trainers. I know they make many tires though.

I haven't used these. I've used Kenda Kaliente and they're good but they're more like 40 apiece.

Vredestein, Hutchinson, Continental, Michelin, Schwalbe, Kenda and others all make 650s but I took it from the OP that he really wanted to stay as cheap as possible.

I like the Michelins and lately have been using Conti 4000s but either are at least $35 if you catch them on sale.

Great prices, though maybe wrong side of the ocean for you...

Not anywhere in particular. I just do a search and find who's cheapest at the time I need tires.

Excellent idea! Proof once more that my brain doesn't work as well as it used to or I would have thought of it.

Probikekit has a few 650 tires for sale. Most are racing clinchers and tubulars. No econo training tires.
