Assuming dry conditions, what road tires fare best in cold temps (eg <32degF)?
In general, what characteristics of tires are preferable?
I've got Conti GP 4000's (less prone to cuts, but stiffer) and Michi ProRace2's (more prone to cuts, but grippier and more supple). Would it make sense to use a more supple tire (P2). Or, if these handling characteristics are not much different at 20 deg than 90 deg, and road crap more of an issue, use tire less prone to cutting (4000).
Of course could go w/ Conti Gator skin, but would miss handling of the 4000/P2's. If roads are that bad, would ride my cross bike.
