Mileage from Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular Tire

Hi All

Any thoughts on what mileage I can expect from these tires in their 700x25 form factor?

I don't think anyone can really answer that question for you. How long any given tire lasts depends on: how strong the rider is, how heavy the rider is, the condition of the roads, the terrain it's used on, etc. Too many variables to generalize.

My many dozens of sew ups of experience suggests that You'll get 1000 miles or until it goes flat

Really, it depends. Front or rear? How heavy are you? How abrasive are your roads? Do you pick out of the tread the small bits every few rides? Andy.

I got about 1000 miles from a rear tire. Reasonably hard riding, mostly chip and seal roads, flat to small hills. Me: strong, but heavy rider.
