    In trying to support mabman's attempt to get a supplier for MB specific tires, I'd like to start a poll on bike tire size(s) that we run.

    I've set the poll up so that the 24 inch tire choice are listed as Standard and Wide, with Standard tires being 2.125 inch or narrower, and wides are just that - wider than standard.

    With 26, 27, 700mm, and 29, there are three possible choices.
    • Road Tires are narrow, high pressure tires, less than 1.5 inches in width
    • Standard tires could be considered 1.5 inches wide through 2.125 inch wide
    • Wide tires are 2.25 and greater

    We can look at a poll for tread patterns later.

    Note: the 12 & 16 inch tires are often used on recumbents.

    My tires are a bit unusual as it uses a 26x2.125 in the front and a 24x3.0 in the rear so I don't know how you'd categorize that. I own a GT Dyno Deuce and that seems to be the only production bike with that tire configuration to my knowledge. It's a sweet ride tho. Probably the only bike that doesn't have a specific tire size category as it uses both 26 and 24 rims during it's production and I tend to keep it as production original as possible.

    My DB came with 700x38c tires OEM. Replacements I use 40c and am happy with those. Choices are slim because I only use Kevlar lined tires. I'm thrilled with the ride and performance of the tires. 700c wheels just gives you a different steering/ride feel from a 26x2.125in wheel/tire.
