Anyone try these tires? Details: http://www.excelsports.com/new.asp?p...jor=1&minor=27
I was online looking for a light blue Pro2 Race tire because I like the grip of the Pro2 Lights I have, but I'd rather not get as many rear flats. For training, I usually run my seemingly bomb proof Specialized All Weather Pro tires, but they suck for fast cornering and sprint intervals compared to the Pro2 Light. My team is going to be running a weekly sprint practice, which I need to get in on, and the Specialized tires are going to be retired to the indoor trainer soon.
Seems like the Grips are a little heavier but otherwise similar composition to the Race. I wonder if this means it's more durable? Still as fast? Better just to race on or ok for fast training? Keep in mind I'm riding on DC's awful roads or I'm out in Charlottesville, VA riding solo with little cell reception and a minipump that is a piece of junk.
I'm thinking of running the Light on the front and just getting a new back tire for now, but I'm already working on my budget for racing next year and thinking about possible tire combinations then.
Thanks for the opinions and reviews.
