      Tires would not fit my bike, though 700X28C was exactly the same as the old tires. Much taller profile, hence would not clear brakes.

              Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

              I picked these up hoping they would fit on the old Nashbar WR 1 Road Bike which I use periodically. Mine is an older model(triple) that came with 700x23 tires an aluminum frame with carbon fork. Bought the "Conti's", (700x28), on sale because I wanted to put the biggest tire possible on to smooth out the ride. There is plenty of clearance below the fork (at 12 o'clock) and just enough by the sidewalls. Took two test rides and am very happy that I went to the 700x28 's. Happy, happy with the much smoother more comfortable ride. I didn't find them difficult to mount at all (I am a 63 year old woman). Just wear gloves to protect your hands.

                This is my second set of the same size and these seem larger (fatter). I don't think they are really 1 1/8 as advertised.

                Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

                These Tires were a great price. I purchased them because of the price and because I wanted a wider then I normally ride, 28mm vs 23mm for spring. The specs for my Scram Force breaks state that they are good for up to a 28mm wide tire but these do not fit. I was able to get the tire on to the bike but the wider tire is also a bigger outside diameter and the tire rubs on the break. No mater the price, not worth it if they don't fit.

                Good tire

                Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

                I got the 700x28 size for my wife's bike. She had been riding 23's and 25's, and she wanted something with a little more volume. It's surprising how much bigger these tires are than 25's. They are much more like comfort tires on hydrid/commuter/touring bikes than road tires for speed. But she likes them a lot, she says the bike feels more stable and she's not afraid of trashing her rims on every pot hole and rumble strip.

                    I have been using my Nashbar rollers for about 5 years (in the winter). I usually put on some old road tires because my normal summer tires have too much tread. When they start showing thread I ordered these specifically for my roller use because they have no pattern at all. It made a huge difference. I didn't realize how much noise and vibration was coming from my old tires. These tires are very quiet and smooth. The ride was much nicer and didn't feel like work. They should sell these tires with the rollers as a package.
