I did manage to get this tire mounted up on the rear wheel of my cyclocross/commuter bike, and was very impressed with the off-road bite...outstanding traction and good traction on the road. But, the tire carcass is a bit like swiss cheese, running tubelss with sealant, the sealant would be bubbling out of a few dozen pinholes...never saw that before. I gave it a shot for a couple weeks and it got better and better, but after 2 weeks riding every day, to still have be completely flat on random mornings made me pull it off and re-install the prior, well-worn Vittoria XG TNT. Have to be able to trust my tires. The Vittoria on the rear lasts only maybe 2-3 months of commuting and training, perhaps 1000 miles. On the front that same tire model has lasted over 4000 miles and STILL has tons of tread left - that's amazing. Back to the drawing board for me. But for normal tubed setups, this tire would be an outstanding choice.
Thank you for your feedback.
