what tyres do i need
I am looking for advice on tyres. what do you recomend i use on my road bike slics or all weather. Or do i just get both?
Its not an easy thing to advise on.
Weather conditions and road types change. I use a tyre with dimond shaped tread on which works for me as my rides take over many different surfaces and when the roads are wet those drain covers a slippy!
I go for a winter set and summer set
Winter cheap and tough, Vittora, bout £12 a a pop. Low on punctures and relatively high rolling resistance but good grip.
Summer and racing Continental GP 4000s £35 each. Usually about 4kmph faster than winter tyres
Lookin at the same thing myself - just wondering how much difference different tires make to the average joe over the course of a race?
