October 12, 2011
Model/Year: 2010 Hardrock

Pros: Great tire for mixed riding (City, trail) Very fast rolling and very easy to remove to repair a tube if needed lasts quite a while (I have around 500 miles so far and still around half tread

Cons: Punctures fairly easily, had to repair a tube twice in 1 week then had to replace the tube due to glass on the trail.

Recommendation: Good tire for the price if your not sure how much trail riding your going to do this tire is a good start without a big investment

Pros: -Fast rolling -durrable -excelent in the rear

Cons: -Lack of cornering grip -Not the best in loose conditions -not a good front tire

Recommendation: These came on my bike initially, and I ended up going to running this in the rear primarily. The lack of traction while climbing slow technical stuff can be frustrating at times, but for the other 95% I'm riding it's more than adequate. I do not recomend running this tire in the front as the lack of grip while cornering is not all that confidence inspiring. I've also noticed that when put on a tubless ready rim the beads can be extremely tough to break if you are running tubes.
