    Tires for Conquest 24

    Well, finally found a Conquest 24 for my son and even though it looks small, once the seat was raised to the proper height it fits him perfectly. Leg extension is correct, reach is good and as he grows I can get a longer stem.

    The problem is tires. I have not been able to find someone, locally or online, who carries road tires for the bike, let alone a cross tire. Any suggestions? What are people using on their 24" cross bikes?

    The issue is that the rims are 520mm and the tires that come on it at 1 3/8". All of the 24" I have found so far, like the ones you reference, are 2+"

    That is a really tough tire size; I built up a bike with 540c tires for one of my juniors, and 'cross tires are plentiful for those.

    Try a Redline dealer; surely Redline can provide the replacement tires. What brand/model tires came on it?

    Conquest 24 Tires

    These fit that bike - they are about the only option available:

    It's ridiculous that Redline is selling this bike new, today, without offerring availability of OEM replacement tires.

    I just checked the Conquest 24 in my garage has tires labeled Odyssey Overbite. Haven't checked out any other options.
