So I need new tires because the old ones are bald and there is a bad cut.
Disclaimer: I know that it's up to me and my body to make the bike go faster more than it is in upgrading the bike's parts.
This Colnago sees only about 10 miles every day on roads with hills but no real mountains in a largely urban/suburban setting with decent bike paths, and its purpose is to sprint (and to commute). It has Campy Record on most stuff (or will as soon as I change the derailleurs this week), 7 spd. Durace freewheel, you know the drill. 700x23.
Since its primary purpose is to go fast, I thought maybe I should replace the 120 psi tires with something w/ a higher psi, but everyone keeps looking at me funny when I try to look for slightly higher pressure tires. It's not a track bike, but can't I get a little more performance?
I would like a tire with nice construction, higher TPI, better than the Czar tire it inherited. I can afford something really nice, if it is likely to be durable enough to make extra bang for the buck. I am willing to pay extra if I am likely to get a feeling that the bike's "fuller potential has been reached", if that makes sense to you.
What is your favourite tire for this kind of bike? Do you have other ideas about how to make the bike live up to a higher potential for fun and speed and.. je ne sais quoi?
