Girlfriend currently riding around London is asking for new tyres.
She rides a tokyo bike thus the 650
Searching Wiggle, CRC, Evans and getting nothing to suit. Only knobbys coming up
Who makes a good 650 x 25 tyre? Who may stock it?
Hoping to buy online & ship to her
650b and 650c (which is what Tokyo Bikes have) are 2 completely different tyres sizes.
Must be 650c then as it is a Tokyo bike (Sports)
thanks for the list blakey, last time I looked struggled to even find 23’s in 650c for the gf’s bike.
They’re easy to find, use 571 as well as 650c for search terms, and remember that the big online shops list tyres by model, not size, and that model might come in 700x20/23/25/28 & 650x23…
But for wider 650C you’re generally out of luck, I think that Bontrager is no longer made, which leaves the 24mm Conti and the 28mm Terry. I’d go the 28mm if the frame/brakes clear. Smaller wheels & skinnier tyres isn’t much fun unless you’re a speedo-bro.
