I just bought a 07 Lemond Poprad with Bontrager 700x34c tires. Not having owned a cross bike previously, I wonder if people can chime in with their view of its performance. (Regarding the tires.)
The rolling resistance seemed heavy on flat pavement but I'm wondering if that's specific to this tire or something that plagues all 34+c tire designs.
I rode 80 miles in the wet pavement on Sunday (Livestrong Portland) and it was (1) extremely comfortable, (2) extremely heavy-feeling and (3) good traction in grass and hard pack dirt and muddy conditions.
I'm not wanting to swap these tires.. just want to see if there would be any difference with other likely candidates. (Michelin Muds, WTB, Schwalbes)
