I have been riding these tyres for 2 years and love them. Can really echo what the review says. One thing I have found is that the profile is much better on 25mm width rims compared to 30mm. The side knob wear is also reduced on a 25mm set up. Maybe not surprising given that they predate widespread wide rim use at EWS level. Hopefully they will update to reflect wider rims being used these days. For weeping tyres the best thing I have found is to liberally apply isopropyl alcohol to the inside of the tyre and wipe out to remove the mould release compound. Do this a few times from bead to bead (on any tyre), let it dry fully before installing and it helps the sealant sick to the tyre and seal pores in the sidewalls (unless you ride continental tyres where there isn't enough sealant in the world).
