I do not like this thing

Rating:
The Good:

i got it cheap, very grippy

The Bad:

Very unpredictable

Overall Review:

I bought two of these things back in the day when i used to race XC a little. While this tire climbs really well, when corning its very unpredictable, meaning i could never get the hang of when it would break free. I eventually got so sick of them i gave them away to someone.
