Re: High speed tires
I've been using this type of tire on my mountain bikes since I first started. The solid center strip really helps with wear and rides very nice. I buy them from my local bike guy "Doug" but I think he gets them from Jenson. He only charges me 9 bucks a tire and this particular tire I have 1200 miles on and expect at least to get another 1,000. I use tire liners and thorn proof tubes in these tires and they are pretty reliable. I dont comute anymore but I used to travel 13miles each way averaging about 28mph because a lot of the roads didnt have bike lanes so I hit the sidewalk- jumping curbs and what not so I know these tires are up to the challenge. All I can say is watch out for things in your path! I cant believe I picked up this cut nail one day! Right through the tire and wheel and bent a spoke! Just glad that was on a spare wheel and tire and not my good wheels!
