I don't say it's for everybody, but works great for me. There's no real learning curve. Just feels a little diff. at first, which ya get used to pretty quick. Start off at around 34 lbs. of air, then adjust the air down to where it starts to fill a little squirmy, then add 2 lbs. of air at a time until it feels right to you. That helps to keep from wearing the center of the tire prematurely. You will probly have to adjust the air if you ride 2 up. I have mine set for riding 2 cause that's how I usually ride. When I ride myself, which isn't very often, it feels stiff. I would drop air in tire if I ride any distance myself. Otherwise it feels like riding on a motorcycle tire to me. I run 34 lbs. in a 195/65-15 General Altimax tire and it handles great. I prefer a symmetrical tread on the tire, but some say it makes no difference in way bike handles if not. I even know of some that run, run-flat tires on their machines. And some that have used winter tires. I suggest ya shop around a bit. Tirerack.com will let ya compare tires so ya can find something you like, then you can look around for the best price. Good luck in what ever you decide to do.
