Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it's exactly what I ordered

I will use the product on my Catrike 5.5.9 when the current one goes flat. I like to get maximum mileage from my tires, but have to keep a spare because sometimes the unusual sized tires are hard to find at the one local bike shop left within 10 miles of my home. My dealer is about 20 miles from home. You are the solution, BTD, so keep up the good work of sending me what I order.

Great Tires For Moutain Bike to Hybrid Conversion

I bought the 26" version of these for a Giant MTB. They a little lighter than the larger Schalbe's I was using (Big Ben) but the more obvious trait was the lesser amount of rolling resistance, which one would hope for in using a 1.5" in. wide tire.

They're a little snug to get on the rim but using soap facilitates that some. Probably the first tire I had to use two tire tools to install and remove. Great tire so far though.
