cont. ultra sport

Postby slowflow » Wed Mar 17, 2010 5:46 pm

commuting on these tyres, they seem to be prone to punctures. Averaging a flat every second week.
Is there anything tougher around that is not a huge increase in rolling resistance.
700*23 currently but can use 25mm.
Thanks in advance.

There's an extensive discussion on commuting tyres here.

I had the same experience with Ultra Sports...glass-related flats every few weeks. Switched to Gatorskins & haven't had a problem since.

Hi

I quite happy commute on Continental GP4000 tyres in various guises. My experience with tyres are summarised here. I have also had a pretty reasonable run out of Vittoria Zaffiros.
