        Comments about Freedom by WTB Freedom Sport Thickslick Steel Tire:

        I have the bad boy 5 which came stock with WTB thick slick tires, the style (sport, delux or elite urban) I am not sure. but they lasted a year and a half before I needed to replace them.

        These ones however, got a puncture in the first month of use. So if puncture protection is your main concern, go for the more expensive heavier, but much more effective tires. Probably Elite Urban.

        For the moment, I still have one Sport thick slick, but the white lettering has turned brown. I am unsure as to why, whether it be the road or or the sun, but I am not complaining it still looks good, kind of like a cappuccino.

        Comments about Freedom by WTB Freedom Sport Thickslick Steel Tire:

        These Sport LE (white) 700 x 25 were an upgrade on my Trek FX 7.9 carbon from the stock universal Bontrager Kevlar 700 x 28 that did nothing well. While awaiting Thicks arrival, I installed cross rims and trail tires, so to be fair, that's the low bar set by each tire by comparison. These are wide enough to cruise through grass, sand patches, gravel, and debris with confidence. Better yet is how well they stick around a fast bend. I think they roll fast compared to what I had used previously. They skid great, look sick, and feel solid enough for my curb drops, even though the rims aren't. I even want them in 26" for my full suspension Stumpy to make it king of the concrete jungle. Love how they rid and feel, now if only I can sort out the loss of air after 48 hours. I do ride over the Rx 90 psi b/c I like 120 in these, which might or might not be a factor. Could be install error as I will not pay a grease monkey to do that.

        One of the tires I purchased came with a hole in it which caused flats constantly. I emailed Freedom about it and they asked for photos but never responded. Moved on to Gatorskins and haven't looked back.

          Comments about Freedom by WTB Freedom Sport Thickslick Steel Tire:

          Stepped up in size from 23c (trainers) to 28c on the fixed wheel city machine. Tires aren't light but they are rugged and smooth riding. I cross multiple train tracks, ride on rough roads with debris/goatheads and they have performed so far. From the feel of the material, I am confident in its puncture resitance.
          Tires noticeably increased the comfort of my rides with only a slight noticed increase in rolling resistance. Gription is good, though I haven't yet been out in the rain. They also give the bike a nice city look (as opposed to a race-y look).

          Comments about Freedom by WTB Freedom Sport Thickslick Steel Tire:

          This tire came on my SE Lager, and from the day I got it, people hated on it. But I've gotten 1 flat in 6 months. How many flats have the hipsters gotten? So many that they might actually have figured out how to fix their own flats, but they still pay actual mechanics (me) to fix their flats. There's no tred on them, but they've been reliable in the rain. They're wide so you can roll right over sandy patches. Bounce right down curbs. They're very soothe riding, and efficient on pavement.Run it at 100 psi, and try to avoid rolling through razor blade pits. When the roads are wet, and you're morning commute is ahead of schedule, and you're bored, just lock out the back wheel, and drift the back wheel effortlessly back and forth and throw the bird to world that you now rule.
