I've had great luck with the 1.25's. Before I bought them, I wondered how their flat protection would be, but I have toured with 40 lbs (I am 160 lbs) on my bike and these tires are just perfect. They will take up to 100 psi, and I run them at 90. I've had great luck with Bontrager tires, and these SR1's are no exception. These tires allowed me to avoid having to buy a new bicycle to tour with. They're pretty awesome.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
