I haven't had the chance to ride them much on dirt, but I have a little time with it and it seemed pretty decent. For what its worth, I love em

I would go with something a little grippier up front, probably just a normal high roller would be fine, you want that extra edge for the braking. Actually don't most high rollers turn into semi-slicks when used in the rear for a couple of street rides? Infact, I think I have some homemade HR semi slicks at home...

I run one on the back of my Stealhead and I love it. I think if I had some money to spare I would like to try one out on the front too. All I really use this bike for is DJing and street riding, so the traction is not a problem.

thanks guys. what turned me on to them is that they are 14 dollars each at jenson. at that price they sound like a steal.

ya, thats why I bought mine, had my eye on them for a long time then the opporotunity presented itself and now I have no regrets. They are relatively light compared to the regular high rollers of the same width, and roll so much faster. I am very pleased with them for riding urban around town and the few trail sessions I"ve hit
