    26c SOMA. But Rando 28 is supposed to be closer to 25 in actual sizing, is that true?

    Forgot to add 35 as that's the size I run on my volume cutter. Yup, bombproof! Would totally use it as my commuter if the gearing and geo wasn't so $hitty for long distance riding.

    I've ridden 23 mm Ultremo's, Grand Prix 4000's, Grand Prix 4 Seasons, Armadillos and Gatorskins.

    I have recently switched to 28 mm wire-bead Continental Top Contact's, and I consider them the most flat-resistant, easiest-rolling, best-handling and most comfortable tire I've ever ridden.

    As narrow as some 23's but a full 28 mm tall.

    I've got 40s on one bike, 32 on another, and 23 on another. The bike with 23s is about to get some fatties again at 50mm. This is one reason why I love bikes with large tire clearances, you're not limited to tire size. Yay! 50mm has been the most comfy I've ridden

    For pavement anywhere from 22mm to 38mm. Anything smaller is prone to frequent pinch flats no matter what pressure you use and anything larger is just slow and heavy without any appreciable improvement in ride quality or reliability. My newest rig is a SS (Salsa Casseroll) with 700 x 28c in the front and 700 x 32c in the rear (Panaracer RiBMo).

    I run 23's and 25's depend on the bike... but I do like the smaller ones a bit better. I know I'm going to have to get a nice fat wheelset and tires for this winter though.
