I'm looking for reproduction 28" single tube tires. I've found Robert Dean's contact info and sent him an email. Are there any others making 28" turn of the century reproduction single tube tires?

There are some solid rubber tires around but if you plan on riding it these aren't gonna work. I'd just go with the Deans unless you want to have some custom made wood clinchers made. Then you can run modern rubber. Anyway you go it won't be cheap. V/r Shawn

Dean's tires are $175. each, shipping included. Dean's tires are a vast improvement over the old Harper tires and you should be well pleased with them. They are available in black, white and red, smooth or ribbed tire treads. Remember that they need to be glued on the rim and should be heated up first so that they can stretch onto the rim. It is also a good idea to chisel a little wood around the valve stem hole for clearance. Look closely at the tire's valve stem for what I am talking about.

These are pipestrello 32s in blackwall, roughly 1-1/4” unglued for display on my 1901 National racer. They are vastly more lightweight than the Robert Deans on my other 28” bikes. They go flat every few months because I probably over tightened the valve stem.

I prefer The RDs for anything I want to actually ride. They are so thick, It would be very difficult to puncture them in spite of being for display only.
