I have only put about 100 miles on this tire, but so far so good. I found that I was spending more time riding on paved roads than dirt trails with my MTB and wanted to convert to a street tire primarily to commute to work. This tire fit the bill and for a very reasonable price. I originally purchased the 1.25 tire, but it looked so odd on my large MTB frame, that I returned them for the 1.6, which is perfect the folks at BikeTiresDirect in PDX are great and very helpful. Did I mention their discounts and VIP Points are great too!
My commute with the old knobby MTB tires usually took about 29 minutes one way. The Geax Street Runner tire has trimmed that down to 20 minutes less rolling resistance, the 1.25 would probably ride even faster. I have not had a flat, even after riding over sharp gravel unimproved road and glassdebri shards on the city streets. I have not rode in wet conditions yet. I would recommend this tire for the urban rider. GEAX is a part of the Vittoria S.p.A Brand.
