Cons: Heavy, slow delivery
I just bought these for my 2013 Rockhopper Comp 29er for my commute to work and they fit perfectly on the original rims. I'm glad I went for the 28" x 2.15 size as they are very similar to the 2.1 tyres the bike originally came with. I did consider the 2.35 size, and although I think they would probably have fitted I think the 2.15s are more appropriate. After changing one of the tyres I put the old and new mounted tyres side by side to compare the outer diameter - they were practically identical (that was what I was most concerned about before I got them) They ride so smoothly and quietly on the road compared to the originals with the added benefit of puncture protection. They were also fine in the wet and on canal tow-paths. If I want to do any off road riding I can just change back to the original tyres. I'm very pleased with my purchase although they did take a long time to arrive even though they said that they were in stock. I ordered them on the 29th of May and they were delivered on the 11th June (13 days)!
