Strengths:    Traction/control/wear!

Weaknesses:    Lack of 700 series!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
I'm sorry for the magnetic guy.....I have used the 20" Kevlar Primo for 2 years on the front of a Rans and Tour Easy, and rear of the Rans. Not one issue...they have been fantastic! Wish they had the Kevlar version for the 700 series for the rear of my Tour Easy!

Strengths:    Roll fast

Weaknesses:    Do not hold up to regular use.

Bottom Line:   
Primo Comet recumbent bicycle tires (20" and 26") on my Burley Canto recumbent. These tires are flat-tire magnets. They are both easily cut and penetrated and a great big dissapointment.

That's what makes Tuesday's viewing opportunity so key: On March 12, PanSTARRS should be sitting just to the left of the crescent moon, as indicated in this sk ... Read More »
