    Tire question

    Wondering if anybody on here has had experience with the Continental Contact tire. I was thinking about putting some 700x28 on my hybrid. Seems like a decent combination tire that's pretty slick, but still enough tread to handle the inevitable sand/water/wet leaves that are on roads/trails/etc.

    Any help would be great.

    I've had fairly good luck with several Conti tires used for touring, but I am not familiar with that particular one. I have used the Conti Top Touring tires in both 28mm and 32mm widths and they held up for thousands of miles. My only problem is that they seemed to get weak sidewalls before the tread wore out completely.
