I would have to third the Specialize Turbo Armadillos. I have over 9,000 miles on a 4th rear 3rd front (no rotating) and never had a flat. I even use a Specialize ultralight 65grm tube and no liners! Just for your information, I now use a 700x28 in the rear and a 700x26 on the front, the 28 should last at least 3500 miles-time will tell!
As a side note, I did not have good luck with the Contis but I never tried the Gatorskins so I may try one on the front just to see-after my front Armo wears out. I am also curious about the Ruffy Tuffy that Rivendell sells and claims to be as good as the Armadillos but lighter, faster, better handling...could this be true?
