This an update to my review of 1-17-2012.
Since I've had these, I built a set of wheels with skinnier rims (Sun Rims M13II).
I tried some smaller size tires with them.
Vittoria Zaffiro in 25mm. I took those off after a very short time. Cornering traction was sub par for this 230 lb. rider. I don't go THAT fast, but I had the rear jump out a couple times.
Serfas Seca 23mm front, 28mm rear. Maybe it was a fluke, but for someone that is usually quite lucky when it comes to flats, my luck changed dramatically. Twice with a fine piece of wire and once a small pebble in about 200 miles. One problem with this tire is that it seems 'sticky, holding sharper pebbles to the tire so that you keep thumping over it. I got tired of having to reach down to sweep the pebble off the front with my hand. On the rear, i had a pebble work through and cause a flat.
I've since remounted these tires and am smiling again. I have about 1500 miles on them and expect that much more. I did rotate them upon remounting. I had to use my caliper to distinguish which was the rear, so they do seem to wear well.
These WILL be my tires of choice when I need replacements.
Thank you for your feedback.
