    Serfas Seca Survivor Tire - 700 x 23 / 25 / 28 is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Cost is not synonymous with quality Maybe I'm reviewing these tires a bit early, but I've had them a week (about 100 miles) and honestly I'm thrilled with them. I jumped the gun, bought a set of highly rated tires (gatorskins), and was totally bummed. I'm not an ounce junky and would rather sacrifice adding a few ounces for a tougher, heavier tire. After doing my homework about higher TPI vs lower TPI, I grabbed a set of the Survivors 700/25 since the winter commute will be here before we know it. I also threw in a set of the slime tubes. Again, I couldn't be happier with the survivors, definitely a great commuter tire.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get a flat! Commute to work and logged in 5,297 miles in 2012, all on this brand of tire. I got 1 single flat tire from June to December, 2012. This tire is remarkably flat resistant. I was used to at least one flat per month before someone at a bike shop recommended it, and the price is amazing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got a flat first time through the city! I'm overweight and out of shape, but I ride my road bike everywhere. I ride for fun (20-30 mile rides), commuting, shopping, you name it. So I bought this based on all the reviews, but then flatted on first ride through Wash DC in December. Didn't realize the issue for awhile because I couldn't feel the wire poking through, but after the third flat I started to wonder. Lo and behold, there's a piece of wire or something that rubs at a certain angle and pierced the tubes in the same place--once causing a pinch flat. I am thinking of trying another one of these because I love the way it rolls compared to my slow Kevlar front tire, but I'm not sure if it's worth the risk and headache if this happens again. Hopefully I had the one bad tire out there...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad. Really Bad. I purchased the 700x28 version about three weeks ago to replace some 700x32 knobby cyclocross tires, and intended to use them for day-long tours around the Denver area. I needed something with lower rolling resistance, as well as high puncture resistance. The good: These tires had some of the best grip I've ever felt on a non-racing tire. Especially noticeable when standing up and climbing, they felt extremely stable, and always ready to push you forward. The bad: The first day I had these tires on my bike, I received two flats in less than 15 miles - one on the rear, and one on the front. Since I typically only carry one spare tube for short jaunts (<30 miles - I've never had more than one flat in a day, or even a week for that matter) around the city, I ended up having to walk almost two miles to the nearest bike shop after the second flat occurred. With 700 miles on my rims, I had the shop's mechanic take a quick look at everything to make sure nothing suddenly went out of whack (e.g. a spoke poking out, etc.). After finding nothing, he took a look at the damaged tube, and noted there was both a snake bite and a puncture in it. He asked if I was installing the tires using a tire lever, which I said that I was (never had a problem before, despite having non-foldable tires in the past). He recommended that I stop doing this, installed a new tube, and I was on my way. Thereafter, I continued receiving flats on every single ride, except for one. All total, I rode 125 miles on these tires and received seven flats, all of which (with the exception of the one at the bike shop) were punctures. I even tried some StopFlats2, which greatly increased my rolling resistance, and just made the overall ride feel "lumpy." After cycling tens of thousands of miles over the course of 15 years, I can unequivocally say these are the worst tires I've ever used. I've since replaced them with a couple Continental Gatorskins, and have had no problems whatsoever. Having said all of this, I purchased these tires based on the numerous lofty reviews, so it's clear that my experience was not the norm. However, they are clearly not as puncture resistant as they're marketed to be. In my experience, I've had an infinitely better experience with the Gatorskins, and would recommend them over the Survivors.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't find out how well they wear.... I didn't know that tires could be this hard to get on a rim. Also, I would like to note that I have change lots of tubes and tires. I was able to get the first one on (after receiving some blisters). The second one was just impossible. No amount of muscling by hand or with levers would do it. After killing 2 tubes I gave up. I can't imagine changing these on the side of the road so they're going back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance and value After several months of daily commuting, these are holding up great! Puncture-free (and my previous sets of tires suffered from frequent punctures). Durability is high, as is handling. I'm surprised at the stability and security the dual-compound provides when cornering. I ride every day year round and these handle as well as any other tires I've used in the heavy rain. Rolling resistance is comparable to other puncture-resistant tires I've used, and very slightly noticeably slower than 'regular' tires. I mounted these on to somewhat wider cyclo-cross-intended rims and didn't have any mounting problems or difficulties... but since I haven't had a flat yet, I haven't had to attempt a change. I'll update if/when it happens. All in all, I'm incredibly pleased with this purchase. A durable product and a great value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tough i read the previous reviews of this tire and thought what the heck i had my dividends to cash in. They have proven to be quite tough and don't feel like a tough tire when riding.
    Date published: 2014-03-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from outstanding tire I got the tire because a buddy of mine told me to give them a try I was coming from a continental tire that I kept puncturing. so I made the switch and I am very happy the first day I did not realize I had the tread on backwards and it road funny so I noticed it that night and put it on the right way. since then I have not had a single pinch,puncture or any problems and I ride at 110psi it was a hard tire to put on the rim but I like it 500 miles on the tire already so far so good. (knock on wood)
