Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

American Classic clincher tires...

Anyone has experience with American Classic road clincher tires? They sell direct to consumers without LBS or reseller suppliers.
Seems to be reasonably priced and affordable: https://www.amclassic.com/collections/tires/Road-Tire

Interesting. Good prices and selection. But the website doesn't make clear whether these tires are still made in Taiwan.

Yes, they’re made in Taiwan, according to Bicycling mag: https://www.bicycling.com/bikes-gear...beless-review/

No experience, but I for sure will consider them for a backup bike that I'll get new tires for next spring/summer.

From what ive read both road and gravel models measure narrower than listed.
