tire of choice for commuting
I have been commuting for about a year now and I am about to buy my first set of tires (the ones that were on the bike I bought were well worn). I am having a really hard time deciding on what to get, the options are just so vast. I am curious what people like for commuting and why and would love some suggestions!
A little background for reccommendations:
I ride a 77 frankenbike (was told it was a sekai but that is debatable). It is a steel frame road bike. I have 27" rims and am running 1.25" tires on it now that have no knobs. There is little to no clearance left at this size. I want a tire that is really versatile. I want something that has little rolling resistance, has lots of stability cornering, is good in wet conditions, and can even do a little off-pavement riding (nothing serious). Any ideas?
