We use the 26-inch version on our tandem for around town, some gravel roads, and last year for a fully loaded 800-mile tour on tarmac, converted railway beds, and canal towpaths. (We'll probably skip the towpaths next time around: too many expletive-deleted barriers.) We love the tyres
. Good control (except in mud), they roll well, and they behave themselves with four full panniers. One puncture (stiff wire fragment) in 1600 miles.
