the tread on them is not well supported by the others, and thus they provide a "less than good" feel on very hard ground. They hook up fine, but the tire can feel like it has its own mind under a lot of pressure. If you like them, thats great, because they are SUPERlight. I wish I could like them because they're pretty light, and pretty cheap, but I just do't like the "feel" of them.

i run at about 35 psi because i dont weigh that much. I guess mine might have been a flawed pair? I think tires are completely rider preference, and I just didn't prefer them.
