Just thought I would report on my experience with this tire, of which I was hesitant to purchase and try as opposed to just still using old or cheap road tires. Once I got the tire on (which is a whole other story!), I have found that my CycleOps Fluid trainer is much quieter (just about silent) and the ride is much smoother with no slip and "better" progressive resistance. Also, I have found no breakdown or "mess" as some have reported.
As far as mounting the tire, oh boy! Apparently, Continental likes to make their tires "tight," but this was a bit ridiculous. Some people report no problems whatsoever getting them on, but I had moderate problems, much like others. I did find though that if you fight with the tire and put it on without the innertube first (therefore not running the risk of pinching the tube) once or twice, it seems to maybe stretch it a tiny bit. When I then took it off and remounted with the tube, it was "a little" easier. When inspecting the tire, it seems that the seam in the rubber is not perfect, and has a very small wavy, deviation at the seam, which could be production imprecision and account for why some are tighter than others.
Oh well, I like them, so far. Hope this helps anyone looking to try them.
