    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!

        Put these tires on your mountain bike with a little and you can roll with the big dogs on their road bikes.

            These tires are used on a mountain bike which I use for road work. Great 26x1.25 tires.

              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.

                Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

                This tire replaced 26" x 1.95" knobby mountain bike tires on my wife's bike. Her riding is exclusively around town to appointments, friends, etc. and an occasional trip on a hard-packed trail. No need for all that gripping power, low pressure, and weight. This tire is ideal for anyone who has either found themselves not riding rough trails and lose dirt anymore or who made the mistake of purchasing a mountain bike to ride around the city. It is very high pressure, so the difference in the ride is huge -- smooth rolling and fast. I cannot comment on the durability, however, if you are a casual rider the tires will last a very long time. When I read comments about getting flats or not I doubt the usefulness of the report because there are so many variables -- we all ride over different stuff with different tire pressures and different body weights. This tire is far better than what you would get on a low-end bike new. Switch your big, fat, heavy tire for one suitable for the city and be happy!

                Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

                This tire is pretty good and I like the ability to run it at 100 psi. With its narrow profile and slick tread this makes for a fast tire for an old mtb. They corner very well, so well that my pedals are all scraped up on the sides from how low I get going round turns. However I use these to commute on and they wear very fast. They also pick up bits of glass and I have actually picked out a piece that was so far in you could see the casing when you pulled it out. I wouldn't say this is a flaw per se, but given the fact that they lack flat protection and they wear quickly I would not recommend them for commuting. If you just want to go fast on your mtb and you only ride on the weekends and dont need to depend on your bike to get you to work on time then these are perfect. I have gotten away with them so far but I have ordered a set of vittoria randonneur pro city tires to replace them asap.

                  Comments about Nashbar Slick City Tire:

                  I use my MTB mostly for commuting now and these fit the bill nicely. I have put a little over 100 miles on them and they look as if I just put them on. Time will tell of durability but so far I am confident that they should be fine.

                  These wheels couldn't have been better for my bike. I punctured a wheel back a little bit, and this was just what I needed. Works like a charm again!!

                    I ordered this tire as it was on sale and I figured that I would use it this winter on my indoor trainer. It's smooth, it's round, I'm sure it will be quiet on the trainer this winter, and I'll get to save my good tire for the springtime. My order came quickly and I'm happy with my purchase.
