    Don't know yet, I just ordered them. Don't know about on-road use either but I'm not too concerned about it since the bike spends 99% of its life on trails.

    Ah, ok.

    I want some lighter tires and I think I might get some lighter tubes also... my bike just seems to take too much effort to go fast... Probably a combination of crappy hubs, heavy tires/tubes/wheels, old chain, and gunked up derrailuer wheels.

    I'd like a road bike, but I don't have much money for that ATM.

    Nice tires, going to have to give us a review on them. I have gone thru quite a few different tire combinations over the past few years but I always end up going back to my old faithful's. I run a Continental Escape Pro on the rear and a Continental Explorer on the front. Seems like a great combination 90% of the time for my riding style.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I had one of those a little while back (a well kept early 90s Trek 1400). Wasn't my cup of tea since people around here drive like *******s and I don't want to die yet. Also every road jitter rattles your teeth since there is no front shock of any kind. Lastly, it's more fun being in the woods anyway .

    Not a problem, they should be mine in a week or so and I don't like to have parts sitting around so they will be on my bike with the quickness.

    Good call man! They arived today and I just mounted them. So far they look sweet and I can't wait to see how they handle the trails.

    Went for a nice ride yesterday and they are great. The grip on lose stuff is much better than with the Kendas and overall the bike seems to have more grip. Well worth the 40 bucks I spent on them.

    I also added a pair of DK pedals which are also a great step above my stock ones. My left leg has a gash (those spikes hurt) from when it spun around and hit it. Builds character I suppose thought .
