Quick 27" tire recommendations?
#1
So, I've been looking around for some good, fast 27" tires and there isn't much out there to choose from in that size. Does anyone have any recommendations or websites I should look at? Thanks!

Fast no - sorry, just rugged.

I have Specialized Armadillo on the rear and Bell Kevlar on the front. I need the protection a lot more than speed on my commute.

the selection of tires in 27" (630mm) has dropped dramatically in the past decade with the increasing popularity of 700c (622mm).

I would suggest: Panaracer Pasela in 27 x 1 or Continental Ultra Sport in 27 x 1 1/8

+1 Panaracer recommendation. Great tire, small money.
