Impressed with the Nashbar slick city tires.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Inexpensive high pressure road tires for a mtb.
  • Lightweight
  • Versatile

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Commuting/City

    Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

    They are on our road tandem and work great considering the weight of two riders and a 45# bike. I could have easily spent 4x the amount. They will grace the 42 mile NYC 5 Boro bike tour on sunday.

    Super Low Rolling Resistance Rocket Tire

    Pros

    • Lightweight

    • Fits Poorly On Some Rims

    Best Uses

    • Commuting/City

    Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

    I use this tire to greatly reduce rolling resistance of mountain bikes and beach cruisers for food delivery and commuting. The rolling resistance is typical of that of 700x25 slicks. I think it would be good for police bikes because of speed improvement.
    This tire fits more loosely than I like, and sometimes gets fussy about being properly seated, at least on some rims. An upside is that I don't need tire levers.
    This tire is not as puncture resistant as most mountain bike tires with tread, but I have found it acceptable for food delivery bike use.
    This tire fits rims that 26" tires with decimal notation width fit, doesn't fit where 26x1-3/8" tires fit, and is incompatible with 26x1-3/8" tubes.
    Replacing wider tires with this tire reduces gear inches by usually 4-8%, and even with consideration of this I have found significant speed improvement by using this tire.

      Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

      A friend lent me a Trek 930 with these tires on it when I was in MA. Loved them. We have purchased 4 so far, 1 for a friend, 1 on the front of my PDG70 commuter and two on wheels yet to be used. I run that 100psi, mounted to Velocity Aeroheat rims. The tire has over 2,000 miles on it so far, going strong on mostly paved, occasional 1 mile on gravel. Regular rough streets, occasional glass. I am a big guy, which Nashbar offered a 100psi 40-559 too. I run 32-559 on the front (City Slick) and someone else's 100psi 40-559 on the back.

        I'm very happy with these tires. Much faster than my 1.9 inch slicks. Not quite confident yet on wet or sandy surfaces but I love the ease that these things roll!

          Very nice tire, would've gave it 5 stars, but not sure how puncture resistant it is yet... to new.

                  I put these on my MTB when I ride with road bike friends. Now I can keep up. Wife wants a set for her MTB. Remember you will need new tubes if you are changing from a MTB tire.

                    Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

                    This tire replaced 26" x 1.95" knobby mountain bike tires on my wife's bike. Her riding is exclusively around town to appointments, friends, etc. and an occasional trip on a hard-packed trail. No need for all that gripping power, low pressure, and weight. This tire is ideal for anyone who has either found themselves not riding rough trails and lose dirt anymore or who made the mistake of purchasing a mountain bike to ride around the city. It is very high pressure, so the difference in the ride is huge -- smooth rolling and fast. I cannot comment on the durability, however, if you are a casual rider the tires will last a very long time. When I read comments about getting flats or not I doubt the usefulness of the report because there are so many variables -- we all ride over different stuff with different tire pressures and different body weights. This tire is far better than what you would get on a low-end bike new. Switch your big, fat, heavy tire for one suitable for the city and be happy!
