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

Just picked up a set for my race bike, as my old ones have dried/crapped out. Thanks!

You can order two from Ribble for about the same price.

How long can you keep these on a shelf? (It pays to stock up.)

Hopefully a long time. I have four from a purchase last year when I was having a rash of tires destroyed. They're still there...although I do keep them inside in a cabinet and not out in the hot garage with the rest of my stuff.

For a non-pro/non-racer, is there any discernible advantage to GP4000s vs a rubbino pro (At half the price)

I wasn't all that impressed by Rubbinos. GPs have a very nice ride, and corner beautifully. Whether that's worth the price difference or not is in the eye of the beholder. $40 for one of the best tires available for clinchers isn't all that bad, though.

I have four of them on a shelf from last year, too. Got a good deal at Ribble ($37 each, shipped), and, well, they last a while on the bike. Mine aren't in terribly intense heat, and they're out of the sun.

It's probably more than I need, and I've thought about selling two of them on CL. But ... if I do, I'll probably flat that day. Better just to hold onto spares.

I had trouble with my credit card transaction going through last night but ended up using Paypal today. Has anybody else had issues with CC transactions at PBK?

This is my first order with them and I am guessing the credit card problem has to do with the international thing.

If you plan on getting 4+ tires, it's cheaper to do the multi-buy discount ones than the twin packs.

4 Tires using Multi-Buy ( https://www.probikekit.com/us/tyres-t...tyre-25mm.html )
$151.27 (~$37.82 each tire) w/ bicycling10 coupon

4 Tires using Twin Pack ( https://www.probikekit.com/us/contine...-twinpack.html )
$157.84 (~$39.46 each tire) w/ bicyling10 coupon

6 Tires using Multi-Buy
$213.57 (~$35.60 each tire) w/ biycling10 coupon

6 Tires using Twin Pack
$236.76 (~$39.46 each tire) w/ bicycling10 coupon

You can afford a bike, but can't afford tires for it...?

Thanks, I bought a couple Schwalbe Durano Plus tires for $76 shipped. They go for $50-60ea. normally. They're supposed to be very puncture resistant but with a better ride than Gatorskins.
