Does anyone have experience with these tires?

Yes, I bought two sets of these tires when I converted from MTB to Road wheels. I've got about 500 miles on the first set, and I'm very pleased with the ride. I have not rode these tires on wet pavement yet, but the handling is very good on dry pavement. I am riding the tires at full pressure (120 psi), and my team weight is 290 lbs. I am using these tires with a Velocity Fusion / Chris King / DT Spoke wheel set mounted on a Santana Rio tandem.

For some silly reason it seems as though there are fewer issues with 26" tires. At that air pressure on those wheels, which are nice, hows the ride?

Yep, got'em, and love'em. About 1500 miles so far on a combination of good pavement, bad pavement and gravel. So far only one flat when a perfectly arrowhead shaped piece of glass got caught in the front tire. Running then on Sun Rhinolite rims without problems even though the rims are pretty wide. Great 26" road tire.
