Road Bike Tyres/tubes combo: recommendations please

Postby kylewalker » Mon May 20, 2013 23:09 pm

Me again, looking for some tyres to fit my triban 3 (23x700). I ideally want tyres that have puncture resistance as a highly prioritised attribute.
I have looked on wiggle.co.uk and found

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/continental-gra ... es-bundle/

It has great reviews and as it consists of 2 tyres and 5 tubes it seems like good value but what would you recommend and where to buy from

Thanks in advance

GP4000s are a racing tyre, therefore they will not offer as much puncture protection as say a more robust training tyre such as the Conti Gatorskin or Schwalbe Durano. With tyres its always a trade off speed/weight vs durability/resistance

On a similar note - I'd go for 25c tyres as the extra volume will offer better puncture protection, comfort and rolling.
