I recently built up a steel framed custom road bike and first fitted it out with some 30ish mm semi-slicks. They rode swell but were prone to flats and the ride was a little harsher than I wanted. I live in the City where broken glass is about as common on the streets as leaves! Anyway, I thought that an even fatter tire with a little protection from punctures would be worth trying. These Contis are about the fattest smooth tires I could find and the ride is vastly improved. They took a little getting used to since I was replacing tires that were quite a bit lighter and faster, but after a week or so, I love 'em. You can ride these with pretty low pressure and they give a nice ride over bumps and broken pavement. I'm careful about glass & road hazards but sometimes you can't help riding through some & these tires seem to be able to shrug it off.
Yeah, they're a little porky, but what do you expect from such a big bouncy durable sneaker?
If you're a heavy rider or you just want a really cushy ride & no flats, these tires are a great deal.
Thank you for your feedback.
