Exactly what I was looking for.
on May 28, 2016
To start I should explain what I was looking for in buying these tires. I own a road bike, a commuter that I built myself, and a mountain bike that hasn't seen much use in recent past. The idea I had was to turn my mountain bike into a "big kid bike" that would take me back to the days of knocking around the neighborhood taking shortcuts through the grass and hopping curbs. These tires couldn't be any more perfect for that purpose. I'm no longer confined to one type of riding and can take a detour wherever I please. During my ride today I rode pavement on my way out, then came back on a mix of gravel and hard pack. Obviously these tires have their limits. Do they roll as fast as road bike tires? Of course not. Do they provide as much traction as knobby tires in the mud? No way. Do I still love them? Yes! As an all around tire to ride everywhere, this has to be one of the best money can buy. They roll very fast for their size thanks to their weight and dual density rubber compound. They are also extremely comfortable due to their width (I bought the 26x2.0's.) You won't regret buying these tires if your intentions are similar to mine. Get out and have fun on your bike!
