Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE these tires! These tires are wonderful. I recently purchased a 2008 Novara Safari bike from REI. The bike came with these tires. I must admit the tires caught my eye, because they are large for a road/tour bike. My first day commuting to work there was about an inch of snow on the road. This was a great test for the tires, and they worked so well. There was not a moment I felt unsafe. I had plenty of traction. I've also been in the rain with them with the same experience. I'm going to buy these tires for my wife's bike, and I will definitely recommend them to friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from satisfied overall I've had a pair of these on my Stumpjumper for 2 seasons with about 700 miles on them. I'm about due for replacement. I ride a 13 mile loop that is 10 on road, 3 on gravel/dirt. The main pro is the lower rolling resistance. The main con is I get a lot of flats, even with tuffy liners. I've crashed a few times forgetting that they are not knobbies and cornering in the dirt is sketchy. Overall they perform well for what they were designed for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from For 2.50 more you can buy... ... the Serfas Drifter. Same tread, MUCH better product. I bought the T&C when I desperately needed to replace one of my Serfas but they were out of stock (rode over a monster piece of sharp metal that left a 1" gash in it and actually left marks in the rim, instant flat, no saving tube or tire). I saw the T&C with the almost identical tread pattern, same price range and Continental brand name, figured it would be good. 1 year later, I've had six puncture flats and the sidewalls are giving out to the point that I noticed a tube bubble beginning while doing my brakes. No abrasions to the sidewall, it was just wearing out, plain and simple. The T&C isn't a bad tire per se, it's got good traction in wet and moderately slick conditions, low rolling resistance for it's width and if you ride in pristine conditions it'll last about a year and a half. (Take at least 6 months off of that if you ride daily) I'm just saying you could get the same thing, but much tougher and longer lived, with the extra $2.50.
