Strengths:    Great traction-sticks to trail like glue. Low rolling resistance. Inexpensive. Durable

Weaknesses:    Heavy. In anything approaching "soft" "wet" "muddy" this tire blows goats. Its like having a plow on the front of your bike; it just sinks in. It picks up mud like VD at a French wh0re house.

Bottom Line:   
Great all-around tire for dry hardpack, singletrack, gravel, and rails to trails---provided it is dry. Horrible performance in anything soft or wet. If used in dry conditions, it is a great deal for the price.

Strengths:    Awesome tire, sticks, rolls like no other tire, weight not bad 740gm you can buy 5 for for others cost

Weaknesses:    It's a wire, not foldable. OK, so-so in deep mud

Bottom Line:   
For $8.00 or less, you cannot beat it, I have beat the SH-T out of these tires. They won't let you down

CST Critter 29 folding redesign?

This is the first time I have seen one of the CST folding 29er tires for sale. I have been impressed with the wire bead ones I have used (caballero). Great bang for the buck. What I am wondering is if they redesigned the Critter. This one at Amazon looks different than the one on the CST websi ... Read More »

Northern Glendale/Peoruia trails, tire rec, and a critter question

SO I am relatively new to the site (I lurk mainly). I have been spending lots of time on my Kona 5.0 Delux 26r (despite the heat) mostly riding up around a rhomboid roughly formed by Lake pleasant parkway to 67th east west and Beardsly/101 to Happy Valley. I spend lots of time peddling on roads and ... Read More »

Why did the critter cross the trail?

Out this morning for a while and do to the rain there was a lot of critters out as well...

Muggy ride this morning but worth it .. bring on the Mo ... Read More »
