I mounted these on my OLD specialized hard rock a few days ago to revive it for road and trail use. Unlike the knobby tires that were on it, these have great low rolling resistance and cornering grip. As a sport bike rider also, I was looking for something with some good cornering grip for those fast twisty downhill on road runs. The old knobby made the front of the bike feel downright scary on pavement as the knobs evidentially rolled over when leaning resulting in squirming and the front trying to wash out. With these I can lean into the turns so much more. I have been sneaking up on the threshold of their cornering grip yet trying to avoid road rash, and they keep surprising me. Good grip in gravel and dirt, great for my area which is a mix of on road, gravel, and easy dirt trails. Will slip some in mud or wet grass, but that's not where I ride. The tires spin true and were easy to mount, I just used some hot soapy water and my hands. Can't go wrong for the price!

Westernbikeworks shipping was super fast, a full state away I wasn't holding my breath for the free ground shipping, and was amazed that I ordered Thursday afternoon and found the box on my porch when I got home Friday!

I absolutely love these tires, so much, in fact, i'm thinking of replacing the tires on my new bicycle with them. they perform great on city streets and paved trails, also a great choice for those who want to convert their mountain bikes to a more pavement friendly tread.

I put these on my mtn bike for spring training rides before I get my road bike out. I ride on a trail system that is built on an old railway right of way. I ride a couple of miles on the road to get to the trail and these tires work equally well on pavement, gravel and packed dirt wet or dry. Not by any means for real mtn bike terrain but a great tire for combined road and easy off road use.

A tire that works well on paved and unpaved roads, very smooth, quick on the pavement with great traction on the unpaved roads. Absolutely one of my favorite commuting tires that is a steal when on sale!

I bought a new 30 speed MTB racing bike that came with Kendra 26X2.0 Small Block Eight tires. I immediately replaced them with these Continental 26X1.75 Ride Tour tires and the difference in performance is unbelievable. These Continentals are amazing. The ride is smoother, the bike is faster and the traction is unreal! I was looking for a good all around hybrid tire and these Continentals are more than I could ever have hoped for. I'm 100% satisfied. The quality is exceptional. Thank you Bike Tire Direct!

I bought 2 sets of these, one to replace some 26 x 2.125 mountain bike tires and one to replace some treadless 26 x 1.6 tires. I definitely like how both bikes ride with them and definitely notice a reduction in rolling resistance compared to the old mountain bike tires. My only complaint was that I had difficulty getting the tire to seat correctly on the rim. When i first installed it part of the bead went down into the rim so the tires was out of round. Correcting took a few tries of deflating and inflating the tube while pulling on the low spot to get it right. I have never experienced that issue before even though I have taken the old tires on and off a number of times.

As it says in the description, smooth ride but with enough grip to handle the off road and the rain with ease.

I use this product for commuting around the city and so far it has handled amazingly taking on potholes and shards of glass. The rain was not a problem with these tires and dealing with mud was no problem. Excellent for converting a mountaintrail bike into a hybrid!

I road commute everyday. These tires seem resilient but can't seem to hold air well. My tirewalls show a 102 max PSI, (85-to 102) so I'm suprised by the specs listed on this site.

Difficult inflating these. Unless I'm able to max out the pressure, the bike feels like its riding thru sand during inclines. Frustrating.

I recently tried injecting max air pressure using the Shrader adaptor.When I unscrewed the adaptor, the Presta-valve plunger popped out like cannon fire. Now I might need to replace the tube! Not that happy wtires overall.
