I've been riding with the s&m tire on my back wheel for the last few days. Definitely starting to like it. Tire grips well and rolls nice. Took a bit to get used to but this is normal for me with any new tire, especially with the change in width, since like voodoo pointed out these are actually the rated width unlike The frequency gs I normally use.

I'm liking them so far. Unfortunately my rear tube exploded today, sounded like a gun shot. I don't think the tire failed, I suspect the tube was pinched and it just took a couple days before it finally popped. Or atleast I hope, I still need to inspect the tire closely. Was running about 120 in them.

Comet 1.5 , at first are hard to scuff. Once you get the full concept of rolling capabilities you adapt. My next favorite is 1.85 Walls, Chase tires 1.75 or  Panaracers 1.75.
