I have the Clement Strada LGG on my commuter bike, in 32mm, 60tpi (the coarser choice). They are OK and not great.

bikiola, not yet. I just got a pair of slightly used Compass tires, and I think I'll try them soon. I'm really not worried about flats. I do worry about sidewall wear, though. People extolled the...

I generally ride tires with no puncture resistance. I don't get many flats, and when I get one, it's no big deal. It's not pleasant to change a tube on the road, but I get by. I'm thinking of getting...

I just got a pair of barely used Chinook Pass EL tires in 28mm. I will see if they live up to the hype.

Not bad. I paid 58.32 for my pair! But of course, I paid shipping.

wgscott, thank you for the excellent description of your various parameters. It reinforces some impressions I have: you get what you pay for, though price/performance ratio flattens out at the top of...

She's short and needs a shallow head tube angle to keep the reach of the bike short. A shallower angle requires a longer rake of the fork.

Wow, I'll try them next time I'm buying that size. I think it will be a while, because I'm about to put my previous commuting tires on my gravel bike. They're Vittoria Voyager Hyper, 37mm, and I...

Well Panaracer can't be the only maker that knows how to make nice, supple tires. I have a lot of respect for Vittoria and Continental, too. I got the GP4000 SII in 28mm recently and have only ridden...

OK I believe the tires feel as good as you say, but 2.5 mph improvement? How can you be sure? That's a huge claim.

When the Steilacoom came out along with its sales copy, I thought it does sound...

I suspect a good way to check a gauge's accuracy is to compare it with two other gauges and then interpolate.

The only gauge I use is the one built into my cheap floor pump. It may be inaccurate,...

Paging FBinNY. He said something to the effect that measurement instruments are generally most accurate in their middle third of their capacity, which makes sense to me. If you aim to run 60 psi, you...

I'll clarify. I think they are at 30 psi or below now, and I rode them that way yesterday. I weigh about 155 lbs. The bike weighed about 30 or 35 with luggage etc. It was a luscious ride, and the...

I recently read an article that said that Vittoria Voayager Hyper tires were way ahead of all others. I happen to have a set of 35s which measure 37. They're nice, and their amazing qualities are...
