Midway offers 27-inch studded tire

By Steve Frothingham

ST. PAUL, Minn. (BRAIN) — Midway Bicycle Supply is now offering a studded tire that fits classic road bikes with 27×1-3/8-inch tires.

Benita Warns, president of the distributor, said, ” A number of customers asked where they could get studded tires to fit older road bicycles. We searched widely and were unable to find any manufacturers who offered that size, so we contracted to have a mold made and had the tires made for us,” she said.

Each tire has 164 steel studs and the word “Midway” is in raised letters on the sidewall. The tires retail for $69.95 each.

Retailers interested in stocking the Midway 27 tire should contact Midway Bicycle Supply at info@midwaybike.com to order or to open an account.

Midway sells bicycle parts to independent bicycle dealers, mobile bicycle repair services, and nonprofit bicycle programs. The distributor has account holders in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada.
