Kenda Kriterium tires

Any Clydesdale experience with these? Picked up a pair on fleabay that should arrive this week. At $34 for the pair, shipped, I figure I'll try them. 700x25

Really good grip but the soft rubber wears faster. Rotate every 200 miles if you want to get some decent life out of them.

How is the ride? Of course, 10 minutes after using Buy It Now, I got a 2nd chance offer of $45 for a pair of Rubino Pro 2...

Kenda krits ride real good. Used to get them for $23 each with my club discount few yes ago. Chainelove has rubino pro 2 slicks for $18 and damn good tires for sunny days. General use the non slick version would be ideal but we got another couple months before the weather changes around.

The thing with fleabay is you can't be too sure if you're buying something that's bootlegged ...

I'm gonna say thank you as I've never heard of fleabay before now I'm also looking into new tires to keep on hand for next season and these are on my list of tires to study.

I'll post up some impressions once I get a few rides, then a long-term mileage report.
