Strengths:    Tire runs true and seems to have great tread life. I put approximately 1000 miles on the tires and the tread was still in excess of 50%.

Weaknesses:    Very tough to mount and dismount. Sidewalls start to separate after about 4 months and the first time I dismounted for a flat, the sidewall blew out upon reinstallation at about 70 lbs of air. deflated other tire and threw both away.

Bottom Line:   
As a big guy, 6'03" 250 lbs, guy, I decided to try a higher pressure tire for speed. Tires were very difficult to install, but it was not a problem in my shop, I never did a flat repair on the road. I ran the rear tire at 140-145 lbs and the front at 120. I had no flats for approximately 4 months, but the rear developed a slow leak. Getting the tire off was extremely difficult, and when I tried to re-inflate the tire, the sidewall blew out parallel to the bead approximately 2 inches long at about 70 lbs. The other tire showed the sidewalls cracking to an extent that I did not want to ride it anymore. I will not buy these again.

Value loss for a road bike?????

How much value do these things loss over time? Lets say a road bike had a MSRP of $800 in 2005, what is it worth now in good condition, low miles? I would thing that they hold value for the first year, but then drop fast & eventually leveling off. Thanks BillRead More »
