    Comments about Nashbar Streetwise City Tire:

    Most mountain bikes never see any offroad use and knobbies make them very unpleasant and perhaps a bit dangerous to ride on pavement. These light slick tires strike a nice balance suppleness and durability. The lack of treads aside from siping grooves allows for a nice contact patch w/ the road and safe confident cornering. You can extend the usefulness of any MTB by switching out the knobbies for a set of these. They're wide enough to provide comgort as well as speed. And the price can not be beat. I don't do serious offroad but i've ridden these on dirt trails and gracel w/ confidence.

            installed these on a tandem 300 + lbs (riders 150 + 118 + bike 35+) We have 700+ miles and no issues. Not showing wear that I need to replace but replacing because the price is so low it isn't worth pushing it.

            On a tandem at 300 lbs

                  Put these on a tandem - my guess is 300 lbs. (rider (150 + 118) + bike 35+). We have 700+ miles, zero issues and still shows good wear. I'm buying another set as preventive because the low price is better than a worn out tire - I have no idea how long we could have gone.

                        This tire was recommended to me by the friendly staff at Bike Nashbar for a quiet tire when using my Bike Nashbar Fluid Pro trainer. I haven't used it on the rail trails yet but it is comparatively quiet enough to watch travel videos (Road Nomad,etc) while training. It's quiet enough not to freak out the cats! Looks good too!

                        Comments about Nashbar Streetwise City Tire:

                        Tires have ~350 miles thus far and they've been great. Used primarily for commuting and they roll very smoothly and quickly. Put it this way: on a paved, downhill path, I leave my buddy waaaay behind if we just coast (he's on MTB knobbies so it's not a 1-1 comparison but was a surprising gap).
                        On a hard packed trail they've done very well too though with a lack of tread, I would not use this bike in wet/snow covered roads or muddy trails. I haven't experienced any close calls but there's little room for water or mud to escape between the grooves.
                        I'm running the tires a bit above the max pressure with no problems in durability or ride quality. The bike is an old Giant Yukon that I've converted into a commuter (racks, fenders, narrow tires, etc...)
                        Overall two thumbs up, especially at the price.

                          These tires are better than the price would suggest. Highly recommend them. They are pliable and smooth running. Bought them so I could use an older MTB as a run-about.
