      This tire seems good so far. Using it as rear tire on a Rans Screamer tandem. Max inflation is 65 PSI. Smooth, easy rolling tread, easy to mount.

          Comments about Nashbar Streetwise Kevlar Belt City Tire:

          The Streetwise is light for a very durable tire. The 700X35 is only slightly bigger than a 700X32 Panaracer Pasela. The contact area is thick and the sidewalls are supple. My favorite 25 mile ride includes four miles of gravel that had cut and frayed the sidewalls of several Paselas whereas these show no sidewall damage. I weigh 220 pounds and find them to perform well at the recommended 80-90 psi on my cyclocross bike. A rear tire wore to cord after about 3,000 miles that included some touring. They are are essentially treadless but they can handle any surface that doesn't require knobs. Whenever glass or rock chips become imbedded they tend to be in the sipes, so the tire could be improved by being totally smooth like the old Avocet tires. But that's a minor point. This is a great tire for commuting, trails, touring, and tandems.

            I just replaced a pair of these after almost 4,000 miles. No flats riding on NYC's potholed, glass strewn streets. The Kevlar belt is definitely worth it.

              We run the 26's at 65psi on our cannondale tandem, they give a great ride and seem pretty durable, 500+ miles and only very minimal wear on the rear tire so far. Great bang for the buck.

              Comments about Nashbar Streetwise Kevlar Belt City Tire:

              I commute daily in a rough urban location, both in terms of road conditions and the tribal elements. Only the most severe of road hazards has ever sent these tires into early retirement. My commute distance is four miles each way so barring catastrophic incidents I easily get more than two years life from them. Also, thet are extremely easy to mount and dismount, which comes in handy in environments where I would prefer to have limited exposure to. For the price these are a no brainer.

                Nice rolling tire with excellent wet traction. Kevlar belt should help reduce flats. Excellent value.

                    My wife and I enjoy lite Inn-Inn touring on our Hybrids. I put these on both bikes to replace our nobby tires used for trail/road use and have added about 3mph. Have also found them to be smooth and easy riding. So far about 100 miles on them and very happy for how we ride.
