This is a great commuter tire. It it is nice and wide so it makes for a comfortable ride but it still gets up to speed nicely. Can't beat the price either. I have had zero issues with it so far and would buy it again with no hesitation.
PROS: Wide, Attractive Design, Easy To Install, Price, Durable
I purchased these tires so that I can ride my 29er hardtail on the road. These were put on Bontrager Mustang rims.I wanted a tire that wasn't too narrow and had some tread for the occasional fire road. These are directional tires, so be careful when installing and use the correct size tubes. I needed to use tire "irons" to get the last lip of the bead over the rim but not too bad. It is normal for a snug fitting tire on some rims for the bead not to pop into position (seat properly)on first try which makes a flat spot. Just lightly soap the area where the bead does not fit perfect and pump the tire up to pressure and it will seat properly with a noticeable pop. I feel secure with these tires and they have good grip on the road.
PROS: Good On Road Or Fireroad, Nice Width For A 29er, Good For Roadfireroad
I have been using these tires for commuting on my touring bike. They are pretty wide and offer lots of comfort. They are not that great in the rain, but I have yet to find a road tire that is. I live in Arizona, so who cares? On the 10 days a year it rains, I will just take my car.
I had no trouble installing them on 19mm rims (internal width) with appropriate tubes. Do not stick 23c road tubes in these. They will puncture easily.
I use my touring bike for fitness riding and will climb 1500 to 2000 feet over about 12-20 miles with these. My touring bike weighs a ton and these do not help, but they seem pretty reliable and have given me no problems. For the price, you can't beat them.
