Spooned on a set yesterday, went for a ride today. Just as an FYI, bought this bike to ride off road, so on road manners are low on my concern list. I did wear out one rear already, and found it to be adequate, quiet, hooked up well on and off road and lasted about 4K miles, so this report will concern the front. On rain grooved highway, it’s terrible, tracks the rain grooves and makes the bike feel nervous. On smooth pavement it works well, tracks well, and holds corners well. This tire is quiet... so far. As for off road, this tire is brilliant! Predictable, tracks straight through sand, sticks to rocks, and when pushed to the point of slip it recovers nicely, and best of all it cost me $65.00, at that price I could replace it every 2K miles and not feel bad about it.
