Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

UPDATE: After riding these for over a year now, I can say I'm disappointed and would not buy again. Although they hold air when setup tubeless, there is a constant leaking of sealant at various spots around the rim. They just don't fully seal - even with TL tires. I've also broken two spokes on the rear wheel. Would not recommend.

First off, the sale price on these is unbeatable. For under $400, I can't imagine finding a better set of wheels. Roll nicely, well-built, look great, quality hubs. My only issue is with the tubeless setup. They were challenging to setup tubeless in the first place, and have continued to be disappointing as far as holding air and being burp-free. I have sealant stain on my sidewalls after every ride, regardless of PSI.

That being said, I'd still buy these wheels for the sale price and just deal with the tubeless challenges.

FWIW, I'm running Panaracer GravelKing SK 35s. On my previous Stan's rims I had no burping or leaking.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

So disappointed, as I was really looking forward to wearing these for casual riding, pub crawls, cafe rides, etc. The legs are ridiculously skinny. I understand they're 'slim fit', but I'd also expect that Levi's would take into account that these will be worn by cyclists with larger legs.
I usually wear 33, but ordered 34s to account for the slim fit. They have a little room in the waist, so ... true to size. But the legs fit as tight as any lycra short. Seriously. Way too tight to comfortably hang around in. I guess if you're a regular wearer of skinny jeans, they'd be fine.
It's too bad because they're very well made. Slightly stretchy, great color and I really like the reflective strips.

To date, this tire has been hard to find. Other places claim to have the TNT version, but actually don't. This one is the legitimate TNT version. On Stan's Alpha rim, it mounted up super easy - needed only a floor pump. Tire holds pressure for nearly a week before needing top off. So far only used in gravel-grinder type races, so have only run pressure down to 40psi. I trust that this tire could go quite a bit lower w/o burping.
