    Tightest fitting tires I have EVER put on. So tight, I kept looking at the size marked on the tire to make sure they were correct. I finally (by using two stiffer tire levers) managed to get them on. If I ever get a flat, I will be screwed because I can only change these at home.

    Comments about Panaracer Ribmo Folding:

    I have two pairs of those: one for my hybrid bike (700x28) and another for my son's MTB (26x1.25). I use both of them for my daily 6 mile short commuting and have never had a flat tire yet for two and a half years. For the hybrid bike I guess they are a little heavy, but for the MTB they are comfortable and pretty fast. For road or hybrid bikes, you will be able to find better commuter tires, but for MTBs they are probably the best in terms of reliability, price (though a little pricy) and comfort. I am very pleased with the purchase.
    However, remember that they are hard to install. You will need a special tire mounting tool like Kool Stop Tire Bead Jack. It always takes more than thirty minutes to mount my hybrid ones.

      Comments about Panaracer Ribmo Folding:

      Great tires for converting a MTB to a fast commuter. Really sticky and durable rubber. I ride through some thorn covered roads here in southern California and have had no flats after 3 months of daily riding. Even hit some dirt trails here and there, but not recommended because of the skinny profile and low traction. Feel real fast on the road after having 1.95 tires previously. Made in Japan and Panasonic makes great stuff. Awesome tires for the money!

        Comments about Panaracer Ribmo Folding:

        This tire can be inflated to 100 PSI. And it has a narrow running surface. It helps make the tire also as fast as a 700C x 25 tire. Great flat protection. Good wet and dry traction. I commute daily to work in the Seattle area. In 3 years I have only had 1 flat - a large sharp pointed piece of glass. The tires have picked up other pieces of glass, but did not cut through them.

          Bought these to use on my cross bike for riding the dirt roads in my area. I set them up tubeless. I had to make sure I had enough sealant in there at first but once I did they didn't leak at all. I have run these at 100psi and 20psi, they work great at all pressure. I am happy with this purchase.

              Comments about Panaracer Ribmo Folding:

              After 2400 miles, 12 months, of commuting 0 punctures and plenty of thread left. This is impressive because my average was 4 to 6 flats a year on continental 4 seasons. The extra weight of the Ribmo is worthwhile since I can get to work on time without a flat. I would gladly use these same tires on a extended tour.

              Hi pressure narrow 26" rires are very few on the market, We got 2500 miles out of our first, but I add on the rear, the tread shape does'nt look like it would be a good front choice. This tire is hard to install when new, but after a few miles stretches into shape and can be removed without tools

                I commuted for years on the 700x28C model, taking them off each Sunday in the fall to swap for cyclocross tires. No issues at all. Great ride, good weight and decent wear for commuter tire. However this past fall I purchased the the 700x25C model, and they were pretty darn difficult to mount. After a month of swapping them out for Sunday cyclocross, they're certainly easier to mount, but nowhere near as easy as my older 700x28C tires. I definitely prefer to be on the narrower, 25C version as these roll surprisingly well.

                  Comments about Panaracer Ribmo Folding:

                  I use this strictly for commuting on a hybrid bike so my experience is based on riding only on smooth concrete with occasional potholes and gravel. Also, I'm downsizing from 700x42's to 700x32's so I don't have another 32 with which to make a comparison. First impression is that it is a fairly grippy tire. Seems to roll well also. I can get speeds that are close to what I get on a road bike with skinnier tires, yet the ride is not as jarring. I like that I can pump it up as high as 100 PSI for even lower rolling resistance.

                  It took me a good 15 minutes to figure out how to put this tire on the first time though. It's a really tight fit so you'll need to get as much slack as you can get. The key is that the inner tube must be fully deflated after you get 3/4 of the tire on. After that it's a breeze and you will not need to resort to tools other than your fingers.

                    I love these tires.

                    They are super-durable both for general wear and tear and punctures, but they still have pretty darn good grip and handling. These are great tires for a medium-fast commuter in a tough environment.

                      I like these tires because they're inexpensive, durable, fairly light, and have good flat protection. These are all things you want from a commuting tire.

                      Here's the funky part. They have this raised ridge to them which is unusual. I have the 2.0 and 1.5 (26 inch versions) and they're both just pointy. I've decided to put the RibMos on the back because back tires tend to "square off" when they wear and get something else on the front (Panaracer T-Servs).

                      Second funky part is the tire squeals when I corner. I don't feel like I'm losing grip but the squealing-- classic car tire movie chase scene squealing-- is kind of unnerving. It makes me want to back off the turn. Never heard this in other tires. I wonder if it's related to the ridge. I don't hear it in the rear...
