StarStarStarStarStar Tires for riding with son on back seat

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Great volume for road tire
Smooth ride
reflective strip is nice

Cons

Already some separation and cracks in the sidewall.

Other Thoughts

I ride my son around on a bike rack mounted seat. Total of 286 lbs lugging around town. Its really nice to have some extra volume in the tire to even out the road. At ~55lbs its solid enough to keep good speed. Put on about 200 miles so far and there is some cracking or separation in the sidewalls though. May have had too much pressure for a while or due to being on a mountain bike rim.

I put these on my cargo bike because of their reputation for being a tough tire. I was surprised at how fast they roll , very little resistance. That big Bike almost feels lighter . I'm so glad I tried these .

Cons

None

StarStarStarStarStar Three tires for a trike

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

We needed a robust tire that would hold up over many miles of street biking. We needed a tire that would reflect automobile lights at night. The tires were mounted on a Schwinn three wheeled bike and have worked flawlessly.

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

The way the tires were shipped made it easy to mount them right out of the box. There was no tire memory to deal with.
