    Strength:

    Light, responsive, puncture resistant

    I mounted these tubulars on my commuting bike and I've commuted through the nasty streets of Baltimore and Philadelphia without any punctures for almost a year and a half now. They're probably not the best tire to use for commuting, but I got them on sale at the LBS.

    Strength:

    Rolls really fast, corners well, nice and hard. You can often find these pretty cheap on Ebay. Great TT tub

    Weakness:

    A bit heavier than most racing tubs

    Used to race in ironman and half ironman races. Never flatted and raced in rain hail and shine. Downhill I never get passed, up hills the legs are the problem. After racing I check the tires and have often pulled glass from both front and back. Tread is pretty thick.

    Weakness:

    too many flats...

    Bought three, 2nd ride had a big bubble at valve stem. Put on spare, bought another spare & it had seperation at valve stem. Bought another and actually had two flats, both punctures during Ironman. Bad luck or bad tire?
