Even though the box specifically says "not for mountain bike use" this tire fit perfectly on my Mongoose Deception. Much less rolling resistance than the knobby tires that came on my bike. Made riding my bike much more enjoyable since it doesn't feel like I'm dragging an anchor behind anymore, I still can't believe how much resistance the stock tires have. These seem to grip considerably better than the knobby tires under braking and turning on pavement, not sure how long they will last since the rubber seems pretty soft, they seem to pick up sand and tiny pieces of gravel I didn't even realize were on the road. As with any folding tire it was kind of a pain to install since it wants to stay folded and does not resemble an actual tire until you get it mounted.
Thanks Walmart for carrying this size bike tire. When I have to purchase at bycycle store it is over $30 bucks. Good quality. Works fine
I bought a pair of these for my bike. I guess they get good grip I only spilled it once around a corner and I think there was some sand there or gravel or something.
Where I have the mixed feelings is about the tread wear. My front tire looked almost brand new after maybe 500 miles, however both my rims were bent so my rear tire would lock up very briefly sometimes. I didn't think anything of it until I looked at the tire one day and I had worn down clear through the tire to the kevlar layer in one spot. The rest of the rear tire looked great, just as good as the front. I never did get a flat
So I have mixed feelings about wither these tires have good grip and good wear life or not.
I have a 700c trek podium 9.9 nissan and radio shack eddition, and this tire was ok. I ride between 25-50 miles a day. I usually use bontager triathalon tires, but those were getting very very expensive and cost around 75.00 a tire or more, and only last 1-2 weeks. I needed a tire I could ride for leasure, not race, so i tried these. they lasted for about 550 miles before they were worn to kevlar. I would recomend these to anywon who needs a cheap tire for training, or leasure. They are alot heavier. These are good if you have coverd rims, because they grip. over all excellent
Good tire , good price. This is the 5th tire purchased because I put his on all my bikes when I replace a tire.
I bought 2 of these tires to replace the inexpensive tires that came with my Genesis GS700. The originals tires were starting to crack on the sidewalls after almost daily use. They were no match for the goathead thorns in far west Texas.
Installing the Bell tires was easier than I expected, based on the reviews posted so far. I did unfold the tires and let set in the sun for about five minutes. Using tire levers the job a snap! Now, about five miles into my first ride with the Bell tires my front tire did suffer a puncture courtesy a giant goathead. I failed to bring any tools thinking i would never get a flat again. I managed to muscle of the tire off the rim and patch the tube (I broke down 2 blocks from and ACE Hardware Store and bought a patch kit). I mounted the tire and pumped up to 70lbs and finished my 16 mile ride without a hitch. I did "Slime" the tires after that though.
These tires are meatier than the original tires and the material grips the road much better. I am actually taking turns faster anriding at a faster pace now due to how secure I feel with these new tires.
I rated the tires 4 stars only because of the single puncture the Bell tires did not prevent first time out.
The added feature of the tire having Kevlar as part of its design was an added plus. There are a lot of thorns on the bike paths I ride and I hate to have to stop and repair a tube on a long ride
first bicycle tire I ever put on; thought I would save myself some money. Got it on but it was out of round. I found one spot was lower inside the rim. I deflated the tire and pried up the tire to undo the crimp and then checked the rest of it. It was true after that. Good tire now.
Tire is flattened and rolled up for packaging, which makes it more difficult to mount on rim because it does not hold a shape to facilitate mounting. Tire is labeled as a 700cc or 27 inch tire, so doesn't correctly fit either one. Tire is 35cc but is advertised as fitting a 35cc to 45cc rim, so it really is too narrow for a 45cc bike rim. This tire tries to be too much so ends up being poor at everything. I would not buy this tire again.
The product was as expected, and the delivery was timely
I purchased two Bell 700c bicycle tires for my Cannondale bicycle. The tires were thin and so flimsy that they were literally rolled into a ball. After taking them out of the package they proved to be a totally inadequate product. The tire did not stay round, it did not fit well into my wheel, it gave virtually no traction and it moved around on the wheel, even with a lot of air in the tube. I returned the tires and received a refund. Take my advise, pay $5 more and go to a bicycle store and get a proper tire that can not be rolled into a small ball. Walmart should discontinue selling such an inferior product and sell tires that cannot be rolled up!
I was caught by the Kevlar part. Tons of stuff on LA, CA streets and I'm not happy being stuck in the boonies with a flat. So far so good. It gives me a smooth ride at a reasonable price.
They mad tight wicked stupid ya mean!
Great tire for the money. Better than others at higher price.
Fits like it is supposed to. After unfolding it and massaging it to get it into more of a circular shape, it installed the same as all other bicycle tires I've dealt with. It seems to be a good price for a tire with kevlar.
