Tyres for long distance riding (406)
The forum gave me some great input into selecting a bike for long distance riding. Audax/Brevets/Randonnees etc, ultimately for riding Paris Brest Paris.
In that thread there was discussion about tyres. I've tried the Comets (1.35) that came on the bike for a few shorter rides and Scorchers (1.5) for a 200km and a 365km
I did not mind the Scorchers but they were very difficult to get even on the rim and therefore not totally smooth on the rolling - a bit out of round. More importantly, they were not very good in the wet. I've ridden slicks for many years without issue in the wet, but these were positively slippery.
Any comments about good, fast tyres that are good in the wet as well. I was thinking of trying the Kojaks. Worth a try? (also trying to avoid having a supply of a couple of every type of tyre at home during the experimentation :) )
Should I go back to the Comets I have? - standard not the Kevlar
Any comments would be appreciated
