Monster Tires

Plus-size tires are all the rage, and OYM has them in stock!

Most road bikes can handle larger tires, with little to no weight penalty. Benefits include increased grip, better rolling efficiency, and more overall comfort.

The typical road bike tire is 23 centimeters wide. At OYM bike, we have been recommending 25 centimeter tires for years and often larger when applicable.

Different rim widths can also effect how wide the tire eventually inflates. It's hard to see the difference but the ride feel is tremendously different, often much more efficient as well! Stop by with your bike to discuss all the options.

Fat-tire bikes are also great for fast descents and smooth climbs off-road. With wheels in excess of 27.5 inches, mountain bikers experience much greater traction and stability.

Toothy tires like these offer supreme traction and grip. You'll be amazed how your stopping power and responsiveness is significantly increased on rocky terrain.

Yet the feel of your ride remains playful thanks to the increased rear wheel stiffness. We have multiple frame sizes to ensure a perfect fit for every rider. Come take one for spin.

The timing is perfect for an autumn road trip. Let us help you outfit your road or mountain bike today just in time for your trip up north.

Drop by the shop anytime. We're here to help.

Love, Peace and Bicycle Grease,
