Strengths:    Fairly tough, reasonable handling, inexpensive, totally slick.

Weaknesses:    Much wider than advertised, handling so-so, puncture resistance not uber-amazing, weight.

Bottom Line:   
For the money it's an excellent training/commuting tire. It doesn't have the greatest handling, but by no means is it bad even in the wet.

It lasts for ages and doesn't square off much. However it weighs a ton (400 or more grams) and is susceptible to the same metal shards and glass that all road tires seem fallible to. It might make a good rear tire paired up with something else with similar width in winter training.

My Vernier calipers say my 28mm tire is 32mm on my rims, so most likely it won't fit your bike unless you have a dedicated commuter bike or disk brake road bike.
