Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have had two broken drive side spokes, and both times it rendered the bike unrideable due to rubbing violently against the brakes. According to the local Mavic dealer there is a recall on these wheels, They say there was an issue with the tolerance on the drive side spokes. Mavic are taking the rear wheel back for a full rebuild and no news on when it will be done. Was promised a temporary replacement, but after two weeks still waiting.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this for a race with a bunch of fire roads, and didn't expect much on the trails here in Park City. But it provided a reasonable amount of confidence with grip and rolls fast. On a couple of loose corners definitely felt it slide, but that's what you'd expect for a tire like this. I used it with a Continental X-king up front.

Had both this tire, and a nobby nic on my front wheel blow out in the same ride. Less than 100 miles on these tires and they're trash due to multiple sidewall tears. Read the reviews on the snakeskin versions, and went to the local bike store and picked up some today to try - they seem to be a little less paper thin on the sidewalls.

Bought this pack after breaking two ICS clip packs. It seems really good, but over the weekend I had two incidents of it un-velcroing itself and dropping down onto the wheel. First time was on my road bike and second time on my mountain bike. I bought the same pack twice - once for each bike, and the issue applied to both.
