Not certain the best way to say this (as I mean it as a positive) as I’m also really pleased with the cheap tire spec. I haven’t ridden the tires, and I’d give them an honest go, but let’s face it, with rare exceptions the tires at this price point - and on bikes much more expensive - are often brand-name sh*t, like Schwalbe Performance Tires, and even when they aren’t they’re usually tires that are okay-ish most places but not what anyone would actually buy for local riding. A bike has to come with shoes, but going cheap - spending the spec $ elsewhere - and letting me choose the rubber I want is a great call at any price point. I’d buy an AT-7, put on a e13 TRSr up front, Bontrager SE4 in the rear, Saint sintered pads up front, and a pair of good flat pedals and it’s play time. Future wheel upgrade pending $$$.
