I really like how this tire rolls, nice and smooth on the smoothest of roads, but I can also feel the road quite well, like Flash had commented before me. I started out with the all Black tire, which worked great, until I started developing a flat spot on the rear tire and started developing pinch flats every few rides. Keep in mind, I don't rotate the tires, except for when the rear tire needs replaced. I'll move the front to the rear, and put the new tire on the front. I believe that I got nearly 1000 miles out of the black set before I went ahead and tossed the rear with the flat spot, and put the old front in storage. I then purchased a pair of the red compound tires. I got about 850 miles out of these before the casing split, right down the middle of the tire, causing quite a bulge, and making the tire nearly unrideable, and extremely unsafe. Luckily I still had the black tread tire in storage as a backup. By this point, the red compound rear tire had developed a flat spot, and started causing pinch flats. The red sure looked flashy on my bike, but the tread compound doesn't seem to be quite as sturdy as the black compound. Needless to say, I'll be looking for a new tire that hopefully will get double the mileage of this one.
Thank you for your feedback.
