Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 159 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I've got 4 pairs of these and have put several thousand miles on them in the last year. No complaints. They fit better around my quads and the leg opening than my Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit bibs, and the lack of any stitching is an amazing feeling. No issue with quality or durability so far. The Elite Pursuit bibs were giving me saddle sores after long indoor training rides, the PI Black bibs have proven to be much more comfortable for indoor training. Outdoors, both are comfy and don't give me sores. I could have fit a Medium, but I went with a large because I don't like feeling like the bibs are making me hunch over. In the crotch area, a medium would have been good, but the legs and straps of the Large fit better for me.

I actually really love this tire. Like any tire, if you choose a tread pattern not ideal for your riding style or trail conditions, that's on you, not the tire. The Chronicle is a high volume, low-tread, fast rolling tire. It excels in rocky terrain and hardpack, where jumbo side knobs aren't helpful. I've ridden this tire hundreds of miles in the Colorado front range and Moab. No flats or tears. On loose stuff and bomber descents... not so great, but that's not what it's made for! 30 miles single track rides with high rolling efficiency and great overall traction... absolutely! I will say that with the round profile, the sidewalls are prone to damage, and I've had two separate bike racks damage the sidewalls from rubbing.
