Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tire recomendations

Looking to replace my tires. I currently have the Michelin Dynamics that came on the bike.
I would like to upgrade to a tire with a little lower rolling resistance. My riding habits are 100 miles per week,
flat lands of Illinois all on decent roads or bike paths. No wet weather riding. Any recommendations, likes or dislikes.
Thanks
KL

I've always had very good luck with Vittoria Rubino Pro's, as well as Vittoria's other high end tires. Lots of people have good luck with Michelin Carbon's, but I didn't like the ride those gave--I far prefer the feel of the Vittorias. Whatever you end up going with, check prices at www.probikekit.com.

I've read absolutely rave reviews of the Veloflex Pave. 300tpi, 180g... very nice from what I've been reading. They're generally about $40/ea, which is why I went with the Michelin Carbons ($27/ea).
