    Tires had many wrinkles when picked up at the shop. This proved to be a non-issue. Paid [...]/tire rather than price shown in catalog.Inflation pressure marked on tires: 100 psi. I was Replacing the old worn-out Maxis Worm-Drive 26 X 1.95 hybrid tires to make the bike better suited to paved rail-to-trail riding.Can't wait to hit the trail and see how they perform.

      Replaced my Specialized Hemisphere tires with the Specialized Fatboy tires in order to scrape off weight and to lower rolling resistance. Now I can ride along with many road cyclists and climbing the hills in the Bay Area is less painful. I've had them now for two months. Today I had a flat tire, but considering the miles I have put into them, I must say these tires are great! I also should mention, that I do 'abuse' them by using them on the occasional dry gravel road. If you are an experienced rider, you will manage this - which can be fun too (keep in mind, the guys riding Paris-Roubaix rely on even less rubber). Sum up: fun tire, which I recommend.

        It has been 4 months since I've had these tires put onto my bike. Been riding over a lot of rough terrain throughout my town, even a few broken glasses. Some thorns even tried puncturing through the tires but fail big time. All I can say is, "wow". Can't believe these thin tires can even last this long and still hold its ground with all the pounding and abuse that I put on them. Simply amazing and will for sure look for the same brand if I decide to get some more tires in the future.

          I purchased the tires at this store along with the inner tubes that will actually fit it. I decided to install the tires onto my mountain bike myself to save on in store labor. Aired to the specific air pressure and took it to the streets. It made a difference from using MTB tires to slicks which added more speed to my riding. I've actually pass other cyclist on the road, which was a surprise to me. Before I usually am the one getting passed by. Even had a thorn stuck into the tire during inspection, took it out and still held up without a flat. "Specialized tires, you absolutely did me right".
