Bought this tire to convert my Trek 820 mountain mike to an urban commuter. Rode approx. 1,500 miles in 6 months with tires inflated to 80psi. Have had *NO* flats, and tires still look like new. I can maintain good speed on bike path I take (I rarely get passed) and really have no complaints at all. The facts speak for themselves, these are very good tires.

I've ridden anywhere from 2600-4000 miles these last 2 years commuting and touring on these tires. For the first year, I had ZERO flats and not for lack of trying. My town is full of hard dirt roads, jagged rock, broken glass and a host of other traditional enemies to tires and tubes. These slicks weathered them all. They performed flawlessly on a short 5-day, 450 mile tour without a single issue. Also used these to ride some cyclocross with a friend...and they cornered and kept up with his continentals, no problem) I have had a grand total of 1 replacement tube go in these...and that was thanks to a inch-long carpet nail that found it's way through the tire. I've discovered that as long as I run these at a fairly high pressure for my commuter/tourer (Kona Sutra w/700c Mavic A719 on the front and a WTB dual duty 29er wheel on the back), say around 55-65 psi, then I have very few problems. What more can one ask from a bike tire for this price (they were $17 a piece, tough to beat) that have lasted for this long and with this few sets of problems. As for rolling resistance, these were great in my eyes...though my bike isn't built for speed...it's built to haul, just like these tires.

Good tire as far as I can tell. Increased my speed from 16 mph constant speed on mountain knobs to 20 mph constant speed on flat roads with no effort at all.

I bought these tires so that I could transition to riding pavement when there is still snow in the mountains without having my trail tires slow me down. They were easy to swap with my mtb treads and I am enjoying riding them thus far,(3 weeks). They have good grip and ride well even during hard braking when the occasional lap dog decides to wander into my path. This is my first set of slicks so I can't really tell you how they compare to others. I do like how fast they roll compared to mtb tires. Satisfied thus far. Hope this is helpful.

I made the mistake of buying these tires after ruining a Ritchey Tom Slick 26" x 1.4" tire because these tires were a little cheaper. Learn from my mistake and buy something that has lower rolling resistance. There is a noticeable increase of rolling resistance after switching to these tires and my bike is slower because of the slickasaurus tires. I wish I wouldn't have been a tightwad and bought instead a set of Ritchey Tom Slick 26" x 1" tires which can be inflated to 100psi. Take the time to read the review I wrote for the Ritchey Tom Slicks I had. So far I've ridden over 1,100 miles on then and they look like they have many miles of life left. After they wear out, I'm planning to purchase a set of Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead bike tires which can be inflated to a maximum of 120 psi. Generally the higher the tire pressure will reduce rolling resistance so a person can ride faster but, the bike will ride harsher because the tires will absorb less shock from the road.

UPDATE: 07-08-2011, Sidewalls are starting to deteriorate at 1,500 miles and individual strands of threads are breaking free of the sidewall. Most of the miles on the tires were made on a smooth paved rail trail that doesn't have a significant amount of debris (sticks, gravel, & etc) on it. The part of the tire (contact patch) which rolls on the trail isn't worn severely and looks like it would last for many, many more miles. I will be ordering a pair of Continental GatorSkins 26" x 1 1/8" tires as replacement.

UPDATE: 11-28-2011, Rode 2,157 miles/3471.35 km total on the tires and more threads are breaking free plus cracks are developing on the sidewalls. The part of the tire (contact patch) which rolls on the trail isn't worn severely and looks like it would last for many, many more miles.
