I was in search of a good set of tires for commuting in Chicago. Here is the bike in question:
Its a GT Transeo 4.0, I am running Specialized 700c x 28c Armadillos at 110 pounds. THese tires are slick, and can be a bit dodgy in the rain. No way they are going on snow and ice. The bike came with 700cx35 tires with lots of tread. And I read about a guy with the same bike who runs 700c x 40c on singletrack with this bike. I will put fenders and lights on it before the snow comes. I don't think a studded tire is neccesary for urban riding, even one of the hundred stud tires would be overkill right?
