Model/Year: Surly Nate 2015

Pros: TRACTION!
TRACTION!
TRACTION!
120 tpi models are fairly light

Cons: Loud on pavement, don't need a bell!

Recommendation: I bought two 120 tpi nates off separate sellers on ebay for a total of 150 for both, tires were barely used. Terrific tires for winter use. Only issue I have is one was 1360 grams which is what I expected and the other is 1500. Quite a difference in weight.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: - fantastic traction, especially installed backwards in winter
- great in all seasons

Cons: - rolling resistance on hard pack isn't great, but the climbing ability offsets it
- expensive

Recommendation: I love this tire -- the only reason I've given it a four-star rating is the cost. I paid $160 CDN. I thought I'd switch the tire off for summer, but I love it on the sandy singletrack that I ride.
