Great training tire - Apr 24, 2014

I only use this tire. They typically last me about 1000-2000 miles depending whether it is mounted on the front or the back. I'm on my third set and I typically replace 1-2 each season. They are much softer to ride when at full pressure than armadillos and lighter. I had one set that gave me 5 flats in the first two weeks: my fault with pinch flats hitting road debris while under inflated. I found that buying tubes with better valve seals (more money) running new tubes instead of patched ones along with running at full pressure (115-120 psi) all the time really has stopped the flats. I've only had two or three flats in the years since and usually only when the cords are showing and under inflated and hit a rock or pothole at 20+ mph. That is hard to blame on the tire. I used to run racing tires and I was always patching thorn holes or glass. The gatorskins stopped that. Be sure to keep them pumped up and you should be good to go.

this thing is tough. I prefer to not ride with a saddle bag hanging off my seat rails. this tire makes that possible. it is a little heavier, but it does in fact provide the protection that one needs on the commutes around town, or on the occasional century. the grip provided isn't bad at all.

This really has proven to be a durable tire. I run them on my cross/commuter about 100 miles per week and they are not letting me down. I run through gravel and broken glass all the time and with the miles piling up they are hanging tough. They are nowhere near as fast or smooth as the Michilins I have on the road bike, but those skinny roady tires would be dead twice over by now....these are a good value.

I was probably one of the unlucky ones. I only was able to use it once then I noticed that the side lip bulged, I had to replace it right away before it will give me trouble during my ride
