Perfect tires for my wife and daughters old schwinn suburban bikes. WBW is always spot on in their recommendations.

This tire behaves well on a variety of surfaces. I have used it on gravel carriage roads and commuted extensively on it. It is a great tire if your road surfaces vary. It is much better on gravel and sand than my Panaracer Pacenti tires. They don't have the comfort and speed of the Pacentis, but they are much less expensive and handles miscellaneous surfaces much better.

Great price for good quality tires

I like the durability of the tire. The tire is extremely hard to get onto the wheel. It seems like the tire could be made to fit the wheel a bit better.

I commute 14 miles daily on these, on a Soma Buena Vista mixte bike. They're comfy, FAST, nice looking, and inexpensive. They make cycling fun! What more could I ask for ?

Terrific multipurpose tire

Currently use these on my grocery getterneighborhood cruiser. Used to use them on my regular road bike. Compared to a slick 700x25 tire, the tread slows you down but only by one mph or so. I'd love to try Maxy Fasty 650b slicks but who can afford $52 each. These are very long wearing, have great traction, are good for everything other than high performance rides and are an absolute bargain at less than $20.
