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

Yeah, I don't know why people are still on PBK, Ribble is usually better, and never had issues with losing cc numbers.

I go with whichever as better prices. Ribble usually charges to ship but PBK doesnt so that makes a difference. Also, when neither is dealing, I also have gotten good prices from xxcycle, which is French. As for coupons, last week I got 10 dollars off from PBK using the code Dollar10, which for a purchase of 73.00 is tires saved me more than the PBK10 10% off code would have.

If you're just buying the tires use DOLLAR10 to knock $10 OFF.

If you're buying $101 and above use PBK10 to get 10% OFF on your basket total.

My total was $66.XX for 2 tires.

Here's the difference between the Conti tires sans Attack/Force:

Standard GP 4000 (650x23mm, 700x20mm, 700x23mm, 700x25mm): On a budget. Best of all worlds. Works well if you dont want to change tires for race day (although I do not recommend this). Also available in a rainbow of pretty colors.

GP 4000 S (700x23, 700x25mm): The standard 4000s slightly racier cousin. Contains super-grippy-and-fast black chili compound. It has been reported to be one of the most aerodynamic 23mm tires out there, and is no slouch in the rolling resistance (Crr) department either, especially considering its fantastic puncture resistance. Conti sells a ton of these for a reason theyre great tires. Some say that this tire is identical to the black-color standard 4000, but Im not sure. Conti publishes a 10 gram weight difference between the two tires for the same 700x23 size, so for now Im assuming they are different tires.

GP 4000 Triathlon: A 4000 with slick tread. Discontinued. No better suited for triathlon than any of the other 4000-series tires.

GP 4000 TT (700x23mm): Light; 180g. Slick center tread with roughened shoulders. This tire could be the potential sleeper in the line-up. Its lighter and thinner than the 4000 S. It still has a Vectran breaker. Tony Martin won the Worlds TT on a prototype of this tire (or so we are told). The only thing we dont have yet is definitive evidence showing that it is actually more aerodynamic or faster-rolling than the 4000 S.

GP Supersonic (700x20, 700x23mm): Get out your gram scale, because these things are crazy light, at 140g for the 20mm version, and 145g for the 23mm version. There is NO puncture-resistant strip of any kind; ride at your own risk. With their lightest inner tube, the complete package weighs 200g. Crr data shows good things these are fast rollers.

GP 4000 4-Season (700x23, 700x25, 700x28mm): Take the standard 4000 and beef it up for training with a thicker tread and double Vectran breaker. Also has an added 28mm size.

Gatorskin (650x23, 700x23, 700x25, 700x28, 700x32mm): Take the 4-Season and give it a shot in the arm and a slap on the tuckus. Super thick tread, Dura Skin protection, and PolyXBreaker puncture strip. It certainly wont ride like a race tire, but should get the job done in about any condition.

If you buy the same tires right now on Ribble it's $77.XX. That's $8-11 more than PBKs price depending on which coupon you use.

ribble is great but they never seem to have the 25mm GP4000S in stock. Go figure.

Thanks for the heads up on the coupons!
