I got lucky and hooked up with a pair of arrow launches after I busted my DMR in philly. 26"es. these are the very same tires that some top riders use in 24", such as Anson Wellington and Vassilij Shisskin (Cheesy).. here are my feelings about it SO FAR...

(+) light, can jump em higher, whip the bike around like nothing
(+) nice pattern, really good for wallrides and stuff, holds up even when doing weird angles, better on dirt than most of the 'STREET' tires

(-) mad skinny, don't feel like going too big on it, beating it or doing big stairgaps, can hurt my wheel a lot easier
(-) seen em rippin up due to the characteristics of the tread
(-) not too easy to get in 26"

overall it's a great experience but I don't think Im gonna stick to them on 26". I bet they're a lot more optimal on 24"
