Strengths:    big volume, fast rolling, excellent traction (especially on dry pavement) and reasonably priced.

Weaknesses:    none - they do what I bought them for.

Bottom Line:   
I primarily use this bike when biking with my wife on paved roads and trails - also hardpack. Very fast rolling with no road noise, the big volume (2.25) smoothes out any bumps or pot holes, etc. So far (about 800 miles) no flats and also very little sign of wear. The inverted tread running down the center allows for a fast ride with ease of peddling. Very satisfied.

Strengths:    Gripy. Smooth. Fast. Good Cornering. Light.

Weaknesses:    Due to the small tread knobs Im sure the tires will wear out rather quickly.

Bottom Line:   
All of my riding is street/urban and park on my DJ and this tire was made for that type of riding. Thats what its designed for, thats what its best at.
Get these if your a street or DJ rider.

Date Reviewed: April 17, 2009

Strengths:    Amazingly fast-rolling

Weaknesses:    Roll like you're in sand if you under-inflate; pinball off gravel & debris; mine wore out in less than 1000 miles.

Bottom Line:   
My Dakar is my 'everybike' -- I use it for commuting, utility, trails, all my riding. The Micros are silly-fast when you inflate them to the right psi for your weight (I weigh 230+ & need 60psi);wet doesn't seem to matter, but loose surfaces sure do! Also, they wear too fast for me; I'd go thru 5-6 of these a year if I kept up buying them.
