I bought these to convert my Trek Marlin 29er MTB into my leisure rider and commuter.
These fit wonderful, and have considerably less rolling resistance than the original MTB tires.
Even when they aired up to the max pressure, these things ride great, and offer some nice cushion to the ride.
The reflective strips on the side are VERY visible at night, and the retro look to the tires is pretty sweet too.
All of this for a great price makes these tires a no brainer for those that are looking for a budget minded good quality around town type of tire.
This tire is working great on my Surly Karate Monkey that I am using as a city bike. They look great too. My only concern is that when I run the pressure a little lower than recommended, these tires feel really sluggish.
I'm a daily commuter and rider, I bought these to try on a trek 29er mountain bike, and the difference between my stock trail tires and these is night and day. The retro rides give me a little extra cushion on the rough sidewalks and street and the speed increase and tire noise reduction are a big plus. They are a little heavier then my stock tires but the ride difference out weighs that, and no flats in the couple of months I've owned these. Bottom line I can tear up the streets on the cheap and know I'm riding on some pretty good tires.
My sons and I went on a 250 mile trip road this summer and the tire held up extremely well. It is hard to find tires this big in a road tire but it was just what we needed.
