Bought these on sale to add a little more road friendly use to my cyclocross bike. These are a solid tire, meaning that I don't sweat the occasional gravel patch, pot hole or piece of glass, of which there are plenty of during spring in Colorado. This ability to give a lower priority to road conditions comes at a price. Not $ but weight, at 850g each the penalty shows up in the wheels. Currently have about 200mi on them and they show little in way of wear and cuts.
