When I heard that Buddy Sardenga was getting a set of 26″ Stolen Joint tires for his Beelzebike 20 666, I knew it would be a good opportunity to hear more about the tires that are popping up on more and more cruiser builds.
Judging by this pic alone, they are definitely winning in the looks department.
But how do they perform?
According to Buddy,
…they have amazing grip on the concrete and you can lay it down as low as you want on turns. Very fast and quiet, especially with a free coaster.
In the dirt?
What really blew me away was the way they handled dirt jumps and cornering at high speed in berms. Once again, very fast and they grip like they had knobs, great all around design.
Comparing the Joint tires to what he ran before, Buddy said:
I was running Halo Twin Rails before these tires and I would say the Stolen’s are right up there with those.
(Editors note: I took a lap on Buddy’s bike at Walnut Creek last year when it had Halos on it…and whoa, were they super grippy…if these tires are in the same league…that’s saying a lot.)
It appears the Stolen Joint tires are the real deal…looks and performance in one package.
