      Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

      Got these in 700x23 for a '95 Mongoose IBOC World that has tight clearance on the front. We typically run 28s, but they were scary close to the fork arch. They are decent, relatively low rolling resistance skins for training and day rides. Although our local roads are rough, (thus the preference for 28s) flatting hasn't been an issue. That being said, Vermont has a deposit bottle law, so we enjoy relatively glass-free roads and don't have too many thorns and such. I've gone an entire season with zero issues in the past. The wire beads can be mean to mount. Expect to lose some skin if you're thumbing them on. Most tires I can work on by hand, but these needed spoons for the last little bit. For under ten bucks, I would call them a sound value if your local conditions don't require something with enhanced flat protection.

      Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

      I keep coming back to this tire after trying others at a similar or even slightly higher price point. This tire has better overall puncture resistance and performance than the other tires that I have tried at a comparable price point and weight.

              Great training tire for the money. Will replace before race, but now I don't need to worry about puncturing a tire that is 3-5x more expensive on a training ride. It gets the job done, is reasonably durable, and has good tire pressure for the price.

                Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

                These came on my road-bike. Puncture very easily. Quickly replaced them. Have used them on my trainer/stationary bike. Have worked well on that. About 2K miles before they fell apart. If you need a good, cheap road tire, there are far better options.

                I have received them and they seem of good quality at a reasonable price. I intend to purchase more tires from here for a mountain bike when the price is right.
