    “I do not like this thing”

    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.
