I've been using the 28c version for a couple of years now, and I really can find nothing to fault these tires on. I ride mainly on pavement with a touch of gravel.

Pros: Nice ride, durable, good traction wet or dry, had only one flat in two years.

Cons: None.

Great tire

Rode a pair of these in 32 all winter in Seattle and they worked great. Only a headless nail was able to finally give me a flat. Very happy with these tires

best commuter tire - ever

I have ridden two pairs of these into the ground in PDX. Summer, fall, winter, spring. Does everything.

Just bought these with the reflective strips - and it makes a huge difference at dusk.

Cuts and nicks never make it all the way through.

took these on a 26 mile fire road ride in eastern oregon that turned to lava rock and dust. tires saw me though to the end and were still in perfect shape

Pros: all around tire
weight
reflective strip
longesvity

Cons: none. buy them

TIRE LOVE

I love these tires. They respond incredibly well to the road, all surfaces, and when properly inflated* provide a 'benchmark level' performance. These ride through Portland 'muck' like they were meant for it...because they are extremely safe, you can actually ride faster...PHDM...POT HOLES DON'T MATTER. There is a slight difference (casing?) between these and the TG...a little less supple, maybe more rugged.

People should check out the Bicycle Quarterly Review for REAL tire info. There is access to a chart: Frank Berto, tire pressures, deformation, etc., I did a before and after test and can say that it would be impossible for me to go back to the old method of 'pump, pinch, hope', especially good for wider tires.

Great tires

These convert my cross bike to a road warrior. Very durable, large enough to provide good comfort. This tire is the best compromise I have found between price, weight, and durability. It is not the lightest, it is not the cheapest, it is not the most durable, but it does all three really, really well.

You will be very happy with this tire.

Pros: Light, durable, inexpensive

Cons: None

Great urban tire

Had these things put on about a year ago, and I use my bike for about 75-100mi per week. I honestly haven't even seen the first signs of wear of any sort. They roll very well, and let my commuter keep up with my bike shop's weekly 25mi B+ group ride. Very easy to get up to speed and keep it, and my model has a reflective white sidewall, for those dodgy dark intersections that I'm forced to travel so much at night. As far as the puncture resistance, I was replacing punctured tubes every other month with my stock tires, and when I finally replaced them, they looked like I'd been riding through glass for a year. The panaracers haven't had a flat yet, despite taking the same roads and crappy routes.

Pros: tire wear, speed, reflective sidewall, puncture resistance

Cons: "off-road" grip.. I know they aren't designed for this, but I can really tell the difference when I've needed to hit grass between these and my stock Specialized Nimbus Sports

Great Tire - Very Durable

I have been running these in the 28mm width off and on for a while. They provide great flat protection from basic road debris. They are also really durable for use on gravel roads. I've ridden them twice (the same set) in the Rapha NW Gentlemen's Race and never had a flat, even with all the gravel on the route.

Pros: Strong & Durable
Lightweight
Reflective Sidewall

Good Commuter Tire

Comparatively light, easy to get on a rim, and, so far, puncture resistant. I've got 1,500 miles on the 32s riding city streets and no flats yet.

Light Rolling Resistance

These tires are quite stellar.

They are lightweight and have really nice rolling resistance and handle wet roads really well.

And because of the folding bead, they are a breeze to pull on and off.

Reasonable puncture protection from your basic road perils.

Now that I found these, I will ever ever ever putting a schwalbe marathon on a bike again.

Pros: Rolling resistance, easy mount

Cons: They are kind of a dull black color instead of a rich black

Good Urban Tires

I really like the T serve for my commuter. They last a lot longer than the maxxis detonators I use on my road bike. Good grip for a long lasting urban tire. Not nearly as hard as some others I have tried.

Pros: soft
Long lasting
good sidewall

Cons: gets softer with age
more prone to cuts when really old

Great long distance tire

I am very pleased with these tires on my commuter. I have a little over 3,000 miles on a set and they look to be about 50%. I have had very few flats since I put these on. They grip wet and dry. I think they ride much better than Schwalbe Marathons and seem at least as rugged if not even better. Five stars from me.

Pros: Puncture resistant. Ride nice.

Cons: They are kind of hard to find.
