    Strengths:    Good on bark dust trails and light mude as well as expressway(in bike lane) Can almost keep up with 20mph traffic with moderate effort.

    Weaknesses:    Actually you go faster than you think. Slowing down to enter a sidewalk can be quite exciting.

    Bottom Line:   
    Included on the Trek 7100 bought 3/2008.
    Front tire had slow leaks untill put a kevlar?? strip from a older road bike tire in it. Now now flats.

    Strengths:    Had zero flats. Sidewall held up.

    Weaknesses:    Slow, slow tire. Noisy at 30 mph+
    But it's not a race tire, so it's okay.

    Bottom Line:   
    These came on my Trek in 700x35. They did exactly what I expected: get me to where I want to go without flats. Granted I don't ride trough glass or in ankle deep mud, just around town and paved mountain trails. Rode them for about 700 miles, no signs of wear, no flats. Sidewalls still holding strong.

    Strengths:    Price
    Mix of street and rough terrain riding types

    Weaknesses:    Puncture resistance. Their really isnt any to speak of. They have flatted 4 times in about a year of mostly street riding. Not horrendous but not impressive either.

    Bottom Line:   
    These tires came as standard equipment on the Trek 7000 bike I bought for my son. The bike is a good mix for street and some mild rough terrain. The tires have good traction and roll relatively well for an inexpensive tire. I wouldn't go out and buy these as an upgrade for an existing bike but they are ok for the first tires.
