Decent 650c road tyres

Postby mikegibbons » Sat Feb 16, 2013 21:52 pm

My wife's race bike has 650c wheels. She has had Bont 650c x25 tyres which now need replacing. Although I can find 23s I can't find 25s and i reckon the extra air is worth having. Something like a gatorskin 25 is what I'm after. Any suggestions? I see Wiggle list a Conti grand Prix listed as 26 x 1 1/8 has anyone experience of that?

26 (559) is not the same as 650c (571). Vittoria Rubino Pro and Conti GP4000 (not the 'S' but just as good) are available in 650c

Apparently they also make ultremos in 571 according to a Rep last week but may be a direct-from-Germany job.
