      Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

      The larger widths seem to hold up better. Good tire that i have used several times. Have had poor results only with riders 195 pounds or more on smaller widths (23's and 25's). Gator Hardshell's are the best I have used for this, but also cost at least 3 times as much

          Nashbar is not truthful about the tire weights.

            These tires are great for the price but I now know that Nashbar lists the weights for folding bead tires, these are wire bead. The 28c tire I received weighs in at 414 grams. You can find the folding bead tires elsewhere for the same price or less and they weigh 70 grams less.

              I usually order 1 1/8", but tried 1 1/4" this time. Tire was bigger than 1 1/4", wouldn't fit vintage Trek road bike fork. To tall, luckily was able to use on vintage Raleigh. Make sure you have plenty of room. Great price, especially when on sale.

              Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

              I got these tires for my backup bike. I didn't want to spend a bundle for a bike that I used for only about 500 mile a year. I was attracted to these first because of price. Also chose these because I have Continental Gatorskins on my best bike and I love them. After 200 miles with these tires I have no complaints.

              They are ok tires for the price but my 700x28 tires weighed 400 grams each, significantly more than the listed 340 grams.

              Tires seem well built and ride well. Installation was not an issue as they were well sized. I have noticed wear already on the rear tire and will have to monitor.

              Same as the originals on my Scott.
              Great tires for the money.
              I'm sure their are faster tires but these are durable and fast enough.

              Exceptional tire for the price. Handles well in the turns & smooth / confortable on the strait. Was not hard to mount on the rim.
