" It actually works! "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 3rd Jan 2002 from Malaysia

The Review
It is easier to use then I expected. No sweat pumping to workable MTB tyre pressure (dunno about road bike). It is suppose to be easy to maintain also but I'll need to wait and see how long it'll stay in good shape and how easy it is to fix when it aged. So reliability rating below is just my wishful thinking. If it fail me, I'll definitely let y'all know.
You won't find me carrying my bike home so often again. :-)

Strengths
Performance wise none so far.
IMHO a bit too big to mount on the frame.
A bit pricey perhaps.

Weaknesses

a rubbish road bike frame pumps years ago. If you can pump with that thing, you can sit on my head. Never trusted a mini pump since then.

" useless in mud "


Overall Rating

The Review
this is suppose to be a XC race tire, but it's probably the wrong tire for the same purpose in my & sg. i don't know about you but XC without mud is rare where i am, and i'm not one to change the tires on my bike before a ride based on weather condition. so i'll most likely change it out to somethings more general purpose - may be a semi slick!

Strengths
can't handle mud at all

Weaknesses
