Best Tires for Chicago Streets
While I've been on these forums for several months now, I'm still a relative newbie when it comes to bikes. I recently started using my Giant Halfway to commute to work. I had bought it used with, of course, used tires. The tires will need replacement soon and I'm wondering which tires to get.
I'll freely admit that most of the miles I ride are on fairly easy suburban neighborhood streets. However, there is some riding over rough, pot-holed Chicago city streets too. Comfort is probably more important than speed.
Thanks for any advice and suggestions you folks can give me.
p.s. The current tires are Kenda Kwest 20 x 1.50
