Moved to urbansuburban area with bike lanes with patches of glass and debris. Used up the tires I had and wanted a better tire for this situation. Researched and discovered that these were highly rated for puncture resistance and their rolling resistance was good enough too. They are tougherbetter than the popularexpensive clinchers that I was using. Huge bonus for me is (that for my wheels) they are much easier to change on the road. Whereas it used to take me 30 minutes of struggle and pumping the tire up, I can now do it in under 10 minutes. Won't buy other tires as long as I can buy these at this low price.
