I'm in the market for new tires and probably will go with some type of Conti tire, I've had their tires on two different bikes I've owned and they've been extremely durable and dependable. I was thinking GP4000's, but i don't know if they have the best traction for commuting on some of the lesser quality road surfaces, A.K.A train tracks, potholes, sand, and cracks caused by frost heaves.
There are alot of posts about tires and it seems like no one ever says Bontrager is there favorite tire. Why? Are their tires that bad? Last that I knew, they were were offering a two month satisfaction guarantee, which is a tempting perk. Returning tires without penalty if you don't like them? How is that a bad thing?
I'm looking for 700 x 25's, if you're curious.
