    Comments about Nashbar Streetwise Kevlar Belt City Tire:

    After experiencing three flat tires in two days, I switched the old Kenda's with my newly acquired Nashbar City Kevlar Belst City Tires. I just purchased 5 pair and recieved them the previous week. Not long enough to make any judegement about durability but they are much lighter. I cound feel the difference right away on my commuter. Feels like a new bike.

        Tire is marked 700x35, but it's narrower than other 700x35 tires I've used. I think it should have been be marked 700x32.

            This tire seems good so far. Using it as rear tire on a Rans Screamer tandem. Max inflation is 65 PSI. Smooth, easy rolling tread, easy to mount.

              I've been shredding street's for almost two weeks now and there is no visible ware on my Kevlar belted tires! Thank you nashbar!!! I commute to work and these tires have defenatly proven themselves. I like how they ride and appreciate how they stick to the road on rainy days.

              Good for road, trails, even sharp gravel

                Comments about Nashbar Streetwise Kevlar Belt City Tire:

                The Streetwise is light for a very durable tire. The 700X35 is only slightly bigger than a 700X32 Panaracer Pasela. The contact area is thick and the sidewalls are supple. My favorite 25 mile ride includes four miles of gravel that had cut and frayed the sidewalls of several Paselas whereas these show no sidewall damage. I weigh 220 pounds and find them to perform well at the recommended 80-90 psi on my cyclocross bike. A rear tire wore to cord after about 3,000 miles that included some touring. They are are essentially treadless but they can handle any surface that doesn't require knobs. Whenever glass or rock chips become imbedded they tend to be in the sipes, so the tire could be improved by being totally smooth like the old Avocet tires. But that's a minor point. This is a great tire for commuting, trails, touring, and tandems.

                  I just replaced a pair of these after almost 4,000 miles. No flats riding on NYC's potholed, glass strewn streets. The Kevlar belt is definitely worth it.

                    We run the 26's at 65psi on our cannondale tandem, they give a great ride and seem pretty durable, 500+ miles and only very minimal wear on the rear tire so far. Great bang for the buck.

                    I commute daily in a rough urban location, both in terms of road conditions and the tribal elements. Only the most severe of road hazards has ever sent these tires into early retirement. My commute distance is four miles each way so barring catastrophic incidents I easily get more than two years life from them. Also, thet are extremely easy to mount and dismount, which comes in handy in environments where I would prefer to have limited exposure to. For the price these are a no brainer.
