            Comments about Continental Ultra Sport Road Tire:

            I had hoped to buy some replacement tires for a couple bikes. My experience with Conti's Gatorskins and others over the last two decades has been fantastic. However, these punctured and were carved up on the very first ride, leaving me stranded 10miles from home. Granted, it was not smart to ride sans extra tube/patch kit.I will upgrade ASAP to the Gatorskins.

                I ride on the roads. After only 200 miles a thorn had worked its way in and generously provided me the opportunity to fix my innertube. After about 1,000 miles the casing was showing in numerous spots. Not even a season of biking.

                    1000 miles in and really like these tires, especially for the price, only thing I can not review upon is rain performance, have ridden them in the wet, but not rain. Preform well, hold the road great, even fast cornering, road fell is good and not a harsh ride. I ride anything from new pavement to chip n seal road with pot holes, gravel from side roads and even a gravel strip of reconstruction every now and then, no FLATS, and I've had these tires remounted on rims 3 times, maybe I just know how to mount a tire.

                      Unable to say too much until I have ridden with these on.

                          These did not last 500 miles before I had to retire them due to wear. Don't know if I got a defective pair but if you are going with continentals I would suggest paying more and get the gatorskins. Or buy the nashbar road tire for the same price as these, I got over 3000 miles on them.

                            It's an average tire with good grip and reasonable wear mileage, so it's great for getting the miles in on my 27"-wheeled bikes.
