Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fewest flats ever Just purchased a second set after having the fewest flats ever on the first set. Put them on my road bike for commuting, and you know how city streets can be for bicycles. I commute around town, with a few spring and fall tours of two to four days. The set I just replaced lasted two full seasons which means more than 1000 miles. And the set I just took off lasted longer than any other brand I have used. All around good tires, not real good inb rain, not real fast for high speed road bikes perhaps, but for commuting on the mean streets of the city, they are real good tires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will buy another set I bought these as a replacement winter tire for my road bike for riding in Colorado. The debris along the side of the road from ice-snow melt and gravel laid down by city snow plows was guaranteeing a flat on virtually every ride on my soft slick road tires. I bought a set because of the price-point and reviews in 2008, and they've held up well until now. I intended them being a temporary purchase as I was looking at some Specialized Gator tires. I was so pleased with these, I will buy another set. I'm not so picky on aspects such as weight, cornering, grip etc. It's just a solid reliable tire. It's very firm and provides a firm ride, probably at the expense of some grip, but I'm not competing. Long lasting Dependability, quality, value and price-point were and are all the main factors for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Commuter tires, Good Price Bought these tires for my bike commuting college student son. Tucson, AZ presents special tire challenges. These tires stand up well. Not flashy or fast, but good, solid commuters at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immaculate Value I've bought several sets of these tires. The first pair lasted about 6 months. I was training 20 miles a day on mediumly rough roads, and even would go over a mile long hardpack section (for logistical reasons) What I love about this tire is it is cheap so you wont feel bad about wearing through them, but they perform extremely well. I am now riding 30 miles every day and almost never get flats, when I do they are usually pinch flats. They almost instantly become a slick tire because the tread is very thin, which makes them even more grippy. My one complaint is that they dont perform that well in the wet, but they will definately still get you there, and you won't have to worry about all the debris that gets kicked up onto the road.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for about 3,000 miles I got one of these a year ago and mounted it on my rear wheel. The Good: I rode about 3,000 miles with it before I got my first flat. The Bad: That's when I noticed significant wear all over the tire. The Ugly: Two weeks later I got a hole in it and needed to replace it (ruined my ride that day). I rode mostly on asphalt (some rough areas) and concrete, some sandy sections, and I pumped it at about 90-110 PSI. It felt smooth for me. I would've expected a bike tire to last longer than that, but for the price, I guess it wasn't too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all round commuter tire I'm just now replacing a set that I got about 14 months ago. I've put about 3000 miles on the first set and I could probably get another 500 miles on these but I'm getting some cracks in the casing where I've had glass cuts. My commute runs through lots of poor pavement and these tires have been excellent commuters - good traction, long life and pretty tough. And they're cheap. What more could you ask? I run the 28c size on my aluminum cross bike commuter and think they're the best commuter tires I've ever tried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great commuter tire I've had a set on my touring bike (in the 700x28 size) for the last 3 months (1000 miles) and I'm very happy with them. On my old tires, I was averaging a flat every month, but since switching I haven't had a single one. After 1000 miles these tires show no signs of wear and, even more importantly, there are no worrisome bits of glass or stone chips embedded in the tire surface. Rolling resistance and cornering performance are both average, but perfectly acceptable for my commuting and weekend training rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent commute and training tire Just replaced last season's set of these with a new set. They have been reliable treds for my daily commute and were good performers for training. They lasted about 10500 miles wothout a flat - remarkable considering the nasty roadside debris encountered on the highway and urban streets each day and some unpaved sections to traverse on training loops. I ran them at high pressure - 160 psi, and they still had tolerable cornering performance. Good stuff - they deliver, especially for the price.

what does the C in 700c or 25 c mean?

Asked by: Sonny Michigan
​The "c" is a unit of measurement when referring to bead diameter in a bike tire, the 700 refers to the tire diameter in millimeter when inflated. So a 700c tire has a 622 millimeter bead seat diameter.
