1.50 primo comets = I like the best
1.75 frequency g = I like second best.

other tires I have used,

1.85 acs true 100 - not bad - not great tho.
2.0 acs true 100 - also not bad - feels a little bit slugish tho.
2.0 interstate 85 = terrible and I hate them to death.   use 100 psi in them. 
2.10 primo wall ( in red ) - also terrible,  slugish and heavy as all get out.  100 psi in them
1.85 maxis m tread,   -  not terrible,  but not amazing for scuffing.  kinda heavy.

It feels like a dirt tire! When I ran 100's when I did like hang 5's it felt bumpy and knobby to me rolling.

They scuffed kick ass!! But I don't scuff alot so... :)

1.9" KHE Premium Folding tyres front & rear.

They're a compromise between anorexic coke model tyres and big fat milf tyres....

I just ordered a set of the KHE Premium Flatland Tires in 1.75...  :wacko:

It's amazing though how many riders I see that do run Freq G's. They really are nice tires.

I run 1.75's I'm tempted to try 1.85's though just for sh*ts and grins. :D

I really liked the KHE Premiums from today's ride. Spinning and spastic was obviously better and fast. The only problem is that I wasn't able to inflate them to their potential due to my air compressor. So tomorrow I'm going to buy a high pressure hand pump for road bikes... I need one anyway for my road bike... and see how that works. Scuffing was fine.

Actually, the only thing I did have a hard time with was adjusting to the 2 lbs. I lost on my ride today. Having a 24.08lb. Stylus is saucy.  :wub:

Flatlandfuel.com  ;)



at the time im runnin-

ACS True 1.85" up front thanx to Steve Laps
 and
Primo Comet 1.5" in the back thanx to Jim Mckay

the ACS is decent at best...but compared to the 2.10" Elm st i was runnin it feels great.

the Comet surprised the shyt outta me...wasnt sure how it would work out, but i would put it right up there with Freq-Gs. im almost runnin on strings now even tho i havent gotten much into my back wheel again yet. im sure ill run this tire til it blows out and im layin bloody on the ground...i like it THAT much that im willing to risk bodily harm trying to have a few more sessions with it. ^_^

1.75" Freq-Gs are on my list for next unless Primo starts making Comets with the reflective strip again...i just love the way they look during nite riding. :P
OR..if anyone wants to donate their old ACS RL Edge tires to meee...??? ;D

I used to run these back in '87 on my GT PFT Team model.  Now those were baddass tires.

What difference will it really make?  I have 2 pairs and they weigh nothing because they're small tires.  This weight thing with parts is getting rediculous.  Just put them on your bike and ride!  Damn.....
