    Which tire?

    I need new road tires for my cross bike. I'm trying to keep it relatively affordable also. It is probably down to two choices:

    Forte Metro K:

    Forte Gotham:

    I had the Metro K's on a previous single speed and it was a good tire even on some light trails. The Gotham looks good to me due to being a little more beefy for rough roads which are quite a few around here in PA. Any recommendations?

    Serfas Secas aren't bad. I used them on my old fixed gear, and they did well in gutters and the crap roads around Sacramento. Personally though, I'd save the money and get some Continentals.

    I got some Club Roost Terra Cross's. About to be tested this weekend!

    Given the choices and the fact you'd use it for cross (might be a wet day right?), I'd go with the Gothams. Good price!
