In this video I’m going to give you my top picks for 27 inch bicycle tires.
Now you might wonder why would that be such a big deal. Well it isn’t really, unless you’re trying to find 27 inch bicycle tires, because there are not that many.
I found that out the hard way because the pair of Continental Gator Skin tires I had laying around ready to go onto the rims of my Bridgestone Submariner, they didn’t fit.
As it turned out 27 inch wheels were quite common back in the day, but not so much anymore. And considering the fact that the Submariner is from 1978 you understand why it had a more exotic sized wheelset.
So I did some research into the big brand names of the tire industry and came up with these options for 27 inch bicycle tires.
