I put these babies on my mountain bike that I have converted into more of a comfort bike and I must say that the ride is much more smooth and easy going than with the meaty mountain bike tires that were on it. I would definitely recommend getting them.
These are great tires. I had 2.0 tires on my old Roadmaster mountain bike and they were all dry rotted and had huge gashes in the sides of them. I ride my bike daily and never had a problem with it but I figured it was time to replace them. 65psi top on this tire has me coasting every where I go. Well worth the price. I saw that someone else got 3 flats in three months, that wasn’t necessary the tires fault, when you change your tires make sure you change your rim tape (if needed) and I changed my tubes with the slime ones. Give my mountian bike a road bike feel
The tire size is 26 x 1.75
This should be compatable with the sizes listed.
As long as the tire wont hit the top of the fork
or frame you can use as tall or short of a tire you want.
these are not balloon tires so width shouldnt be a issue.
If the tire doesnt fit ,double check to make sure you have a 26" rim.
If you do have 26" rims and the tire still dosnt fit?
you need to check your bead seat.
most mountian bikes have a bead seat of 559,
but not all of them.
for the money this is a very good tire
I've been using these tires on three motorized bikes for 2 years.Very durable,smooth ride and good gripping on corner turns.They have the characteristics of a radial tire in that the tread wraps around the edges.It's the only tire I trust at 20-30 MPH.
Sadly, Bell & Walmart have teamed up to bring you this "generic" one-size-fits-all bicycle tire. If your bike has 26 x 2.0 tires, this one will be smaller. It's actually a 26 x 1.75 tire. Not only will it be thinner in the tread area, the sidewall will be slightly shorter. Look at your old tires carefully & make sure of the size before you buy. Needless to say, I returned them.
Not sure why it's listed as compatible with 2.125. The tire itself is 1.75. Other then it being a little narrow, it seems to be a well made tire.
I bought this tire at Wal-Mart USA especially for a bicycle trip I was planning in Europe (www.MyTB.org/nomad1979)
I wanted a brand name tire on the rear wheel to avoid flats. It turned out I had no flats in the front tire which I bought at home (MEC, "made in Thailand"),but half a dozen flats in the rear Bell tire. I cursed this tire throughout my 2 month trip.
The tire is too thin and poorly designed w.r.t. threads if it is used for anything other than clean, smooth asphalt.
I have put more than 100 miles on these tires without a problem and the ride is so much nicer..
They will fit on 2.10 rims. I know, I put these on the original rims on my mountain bike. I have some suggestions:
-Deflate the tubes as much as you can. The more air you can get out of the tubes, the easier it is to take the old tires off and put the new tires on.
-Use tire levers to get the old tires off and put the new tires on. I got a pack of two at my local Walmart for under $2 and it made the process much easier
-Put one side of the tire bead in the rim first, then the tube, then work the other side of the tire bead into the rim with a tire lever
They are thinner tires but give an overall much smoother ride on paved surfaces.
So far, so good. I needed a sturdy tire for my friction drive bike. It has enough wet grip to avoid roller slippage, but rides smooth. When the tire was installed, a slime filled tube went in as well. Should be good to go for the next thousand miles or more of puncture free riding.
I bought these to replace some factory tires shipped on a bike. Tires are very tough, durable, good tread, and good price.
Good tires for bike paths and some dirt roads ,better than regular mtn bike tires save those for gravel roads and such for new York city bike paths and asphalt you will be good to go with these.
Got these tire fast. Had to pick up my tubes. ( Didn't know why they didn't send them with the tires) But the tires are a nice ride. My other bike has big tread. these are alot eaiser to ride on the rode. I like them and would buy them again. Tell all your fiiends. They will like them.
Great tire for the price, however, not pleased with the latest price increase.
Not only was it inexpensive but it was easy to install and was a very comfortable ride. I bought another one for the front and two more for me wife's bike
accurate description. smooth running tread.
it has a smooth surface that will give a softer ride
the ruber is a harder compound than the tires that came with the bike
the softer the compound the faster they waer out
i only took one out of it"s box haven"t put it on the rim yet
will be useing these for 2014 spring untill fall 2014
Bike tires. Can't say a lot about them. They are performing as they should and were obtained at a reasonable price.
I'm happy with them.
I have tried these Bell tires for the past year and every one of them has been the worst tire I have ever used. Do Not!!! buy them, they seem like a good buy but they do not hold up for any kind of riding. I will never buy one again, spend a couple dollars more and get a better tire and save yourself some pain.
