They ended up on another distance bike, where I put another 1500 or so on them and sold on the bike. The rear was noticeably worn but the front was still in serviceable condition.

Those tires were indestructible, and super comfortable as I ran them at 70-75 psi most of the time.

Oh, I hear ya! This is my second set, I would reckon I have put about 2,500 km on the first set and they are still going. New bike with new wheel size necessitated a second set.
