    Strengths:    no flats, good wear

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    I got a Trek 7.5 FX that came with racelite tires. 2 sets over 5K miles, no flats. I moved up to a Madone 4.7 this year, have almost 2K on the bike am thinking of replaceing tires since I'm a big kid, 225 lbs. But absolutly no complaints, I won't ride any other tire.

    Great tire. 2500 miles and still rolling. Lots of glass and rough stuff. Lots of small cuts but never a flat.

    Strengths:    Attractive - good ride

    Weaknesses:    Terrible engineering

    Bottom Line:   
    My rear tire on my project one trek with a red stripe Race X lite center disentegrated. The mileage is not that great, as I have three bikes and there was no warning sign. It appears that the two red stripes are added rubber but the center, where one rides, is thin casing. I am most disappointed in this product.
