Strengths: After about 4000 km on my Crows, I thought I would stop riding and write a review. At 390 grams, they weigh hundreds of grams less than most mountain bike tires and yet they have provided thousands of km of trouble-free service. I run the rear at 25 psi and the front at 22 psi. With such low pressures, they ride great on gravel and really help cushion bumps. Traction is great on loose gravel and sand---haven't tried mud yet. They are fast for a mountain bike tire.
Weaknesses: Took an entire evening and the next morning to teach myself how to install these tires. But that was a year and 4000 km ago---only have to add sealant (for evaporation loss) every few months now.
These are great lightweight XC tires with superior performance if you don't mind fusing with the initial setup. That initial setup includes making sure that you have the right rim setup for these tires. I actually had a new set of wheels made up complete with Stan's ZTR rims to make sure they would work (see above for specs). But after the initial setup, I find them much more reliable than most tubed mountain bike tires with the exception of the Specialize Armadillo (see above). I would suggest considering using a Stan's Raven on the front for the ultimate XC setup. See Stan's Notubes site for tire inflation recommendations based on rider weight. Don't buy these tires if you don't like doing a research project before changing tires.

GT and Performance bike went above and beyond expectations by warranty-ing my frame. Originally, GT said no dice, I was pissed. Performance store manager backed me up on the facts of pivot failures, and in the end GT Bicycles did the right thing. Actually, GT was generous in the end. If they had sen ... Read More »
So I mounted these tires up as I have done with a couple of other tubless tires and this morning one was flat. I put extra stans fluid in them due to the thin construction. Anyone had problems with these tires sealing up? I hope there is hope for them.Read More »
I would like to try out one of the Stan's tires, Raven or Crow. Can any of you who have ridden both tell any appreciable difference in the weight, rolling resistance, durability? I am leaning toward the Raven 29 X 2.2 size. Riding will be for dirt roads, smooth trails, no mud, gingerly picking th ... Read More »
Okay, think I've been unfair here!! While I'm still on the fence about the Niner EBB setup, being a total noob to the mtb world, I have two Niners (Air 9's)- one I've been riding daily - and they are AWESOME!!!!! I'm having a great time making the transition from road to mtb and my Niner's def have ... Read More »
