20mm for my roadie is good for its use, totally agree as an every day tyre no good.
PS Matches my bike (the yellow;))
20mm is pretty thin, you'll want nice smooth roads or your teeth will rattle out!
20mm too thin for me
What a website! 2 new MTB tyres for £11.98 with Free Delivery as well! Have some heat OP for pointing me in the direction of these people!
Would have got these if not yellow... darn
After green or white combo if anyone comes across any deals
20mm!? I still don't like my 25s!!! Great price. I mean amazing. But I think it is clear that they wouldn't sell many if that width normally so it is probably why they are so cheap.

20mm tires aren't really designed for UK roads. Perhaps up in the Scottish highlands, where the tarmac is brilliant and pot hole free. But certainly a challenge on the normal roads of England!

If you need this kind of tire though, this is a fantastic deal!
Has been this price for quite a few weeks with them but like other commenters have said you will have a rough/puncture prone time riding with 20mm's around most roads in Britain. I was happier to pay 12.99 the other day for one 23mm Hutchinson Atom Comp's from the same seller.

I'm quite new to road bikes, and the tires confuse me a little. I have a Felt F95, i think it currently has Vittoria Zaffiro Slick, 700 x 23c on it. What's the maximum width I can use? And what's the best width? I am mainly looking for longevity/puncture protection over performance
Thanks!

Most newer road bike frames will take up to 28mm, and the wider the better for puncture resistance really, the disadvantage of thicker tyres are worse aerodynamics. But the main thing is to replace your tyres when they show signs of wear and avoid the debris in the road as much as possible. I have found 23mm's to be pretty fine when it comes to punctures.

Assuming you are using your bike for commuting, I would recommend fitting a near puncture proof tire like a 700x25 or 700x28 Schwalbe Marathon.
Pump it up to the recommended PSI, and you will likely find your travel time will be the same -- but you will be able to soak up potholes better, and have a more trouble free commute.
(Larger tires require less PSI to maintain structural integrity)

I run Continental Gatorskin's (32 on the hybrid and 28 on a road bike). They have been puncture free (not sure of exact mileage but more than 3K). Often complained about for their lack of grip in the wet but never had an issue myself.

Best width will depend on you and your bike. Wider tyres offer better comfort for a limited drop in performance (unless you're racing properly you're not likely to notice) so my preference is to choose something from the wider end especially if you're not the lightest of riders. However, some road bikes can limit the width choice so start with what the bike can take and work from there. Professional riders are moving on from 23's to 25's these days and the thinner = faster argument is mostly disproven.

Good points, I'm running 28s on my Cooper Spa Fixie, 25s on my Kona BandWagon single speed, 28s on my Kona Honky Tonk and 20s on my Carbon Roadie, all different bikes serving very different purposes.
As said before though, these are specialised tyres and not good for every day commuting, but an amazing bargain for the purpose they're intended for, hope that helps anyone wondering whether to buy or not
so they must be good for velodrome track cycling?

That's good then.

20mm too thin for me


Some people are never satisfied,my mum said don't worry, but it has.

Some cheap MTB alloy frames there... 19" and 21" for £49.99 on-one.co.uk/i/q…ame

And 48 cm for £29.99 on-one.co.uk/i/q…ame

As stated 20mm is a bit narrow for all but the smoothest roads. Additionally these must be several years old since Vittoria upgraded the canvas from 290 tpi to 320 tpi 7 or 8 years ago.
Thanks op found some other tyres I needed from the site
Thanks for your help!
Saw these a few weeks ago. Never ridden less than 23c, current trend is 25c on road bikes, but happy with 23c myself. I ride 30c on my CX for commuting, just built a road bike for the Mrs (her first) and went for 28c for comfort and stability.

Thing with these ones I would worry about the road buzz and bumps and they are perhaps the perfect size to fit in to some poorly aligned grid gaps
