Does anyone have any experience with the Bontrager All Weather 2 (AW2) tire? I need 2 new tires ASAP. I'm not patient enough for an online order, plus I like to support the LBS if possible.
I called a couple of places at lunch. One has the Bontrager AW2 for $40. According to Bontrager's website
, it has some puncture resistance but with low rolling resistance.
I would like to keep the total cost under $100 (for two), while also being conscious of getting a decent tire too. I ride 100+ miles per week on mostly decent asphalt roads. I've been riding 700x23 trainers, but will probably go with 700x25.
I'd like to get the Gatorskins, but they run $60 per tire at another shop. I didn't ask what else the shops have in stock. I'm going to one or maybe both shops after work tonight.
Basically I'm looking for opinions on if the Gatorskins are worth the extra $20 per tire?
