Yeah, mine were fun while they lasted... The front didn't last too long either. 4k maybe? I hit the side wearbar like 500 miles ago. Middle wearbar has about 1000 miles left in it. Still rolling on them until tomorrow, then I'm gonna get some new rubber.

Just doesn't have the soft, grippy, confident feel that the S20 rear had

Really?? I've got 3000 miles on my S20 and it's fine... I actually expect at least 2k more miles. It's a little flat in the center from commuting, but surprisingly holding up very well.... it's the same tire I used out at the dragon. I'm in love with this tire.

Also... Jimmy, you coming to sushi tonight? I need to talk about chains and sprockets as mine is due for a change.
