Default Re: Where are the 26 x 2.125 ?

I can recommend some tires but they are double what you are paying. Continental tires are very durable and great tires but may only be available by mail order. I would expect 2000 miles at least using Conti tires. Bontranger, Maxxis and Kenda are all big names in retail bike shop tires and available mail order. I know I have gotten 1500 miles on my current Kenda tire and they look to have another 1000 miles on them. I do not only compare the economics of the tire but also the safety of a better made one under me at 20-30 mph. Even if I can only get the motor up to that speed I can pedal that fast or more and downhills add speed and momentum that calls for a quality tire.
