        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.

        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!

                      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.
