    I ride about 60 miles a week and came off 700×23 low grade tires. I kept getting flats on potholes and glass, upgrading the tubes helped but didn’t eliminate the issue. I ride quite a bit at night and there’s nothing more irritating than getting a flat in the pitch dark, the swarms of mosquitoes were appreciative though.

    Oddly, you can actually tell the difference with the slightly wider tire, but if it lasts longer, it’s totally worth it. They handle fine at my 15 to 20mph speeds, admittedly I don’t do any hard cornering so I can’t vouch for how they handle in serious cornering but average riding they seem just fine.

    My local bike shop was asking twice what they cost here.

    UPDATE: After two months and grabbing the side of pavement, hitting potholes and death grooves, I haven’t had a single flat with these tires. When I bought them I also picked up a couple of Avenir tubes to go with them so the combination seems to be working out well.

    Great tire. I’ve ridden on Michelins for awhile and needed to replace them due to wear. The tires wear well and the Lithion 2 tires are light but not too light as to appear to give up durability. I ride on rough roads and these tires can take it as well as give great traction. I recommend this product.

    *Update* 2000 miles later these tires are still doing well. I am going to replace because I’m afraid of a blowout on a fast descent.
