Last May, before going to Turkey, I bought a pair of high performance Continental tires for my bike. They were the "4 Season" model, with an aggressive tread and kevlar belts and high thread count casing. They cost me $60 each and lasted over a year, including 500 miles ridden on the rough roads of Turkey. One of them flatted the other week and my sponsor pushed a Michelin tire on me as a replacement- the Michelin?: two flats in two weeks! Now I'm riding an old spare Continental Sprinter tubular tire- it never needs re-inflating and tough as nails. Continental makes the best racing tires, hands down- especially the ones made in Germany.
