        Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

        These did not last 500 miles before I had to retire them due to wear. Don't know if I got a defective pair but if you are going with continentals I would suggest paying more and get the gatorskins. Or buy the nashbar road tire for the same price as these, I got over 3000 miles on them.

          It's an average tire with good grip and reasonable wear mileage, so it's great for getting the miles in on my 27"-wheeled bikes.

                        They are OK, but spend a little more. Compared to the Armadillo's I have on my other bike these puncture often.

                        Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

                        These came on my Motobecane Record. I've put about 500 miles on them, to include one century ride. Most of the riding has been on pretty good roads. Early on I kept the pressure at about 85, but more recently ramped it up to about 105. Zero flats so far. Not a fast tire, but other than that nothing to complain about. For the money it is fine.

                        I use the tire for all training rides. I have a different set of tires and wheels for racing. I have raced with these tires before, they worked fine, but they are a lot heavier than any racing tire. Casual and training ride tire yes, racing tire no
