    Continental Tyre Nightmare.

    Hi all, I recently ordered some Continental tyres for my Trek MTB (I know, I know, I should have bought Bontager and I have now). The Contis were an absolute nightmare trying to fit onto the rim. I broke 2 plastic levers so I had to use metal ones, pinching 2 tubes, and scratching my rim in the...

    Continental GP5000TL

    After some research I am speccing a new bike with Continental GP5000 tubeless as opposed to Schwalbe G One Speed. Anyone using either of these and can comment ? Also I did prefer a maximum 30mm but the Continental is 28 or 32mm. So it would mean the smaller size

    Continental GP5000 - how are you getting on with them?

    I only use Continental Gatorskin due to their puncture resistance. I need to get some new tyres and would be happy to try the GP5000 which, generally seem highly rated overall but I can't see many reviews from people who have used them for significant mileages and some are claiming that they...

    Having trouble with Tubless Rim and a Continental Gatorskin Tyre

    Hello. I cannot for the life of me get a new 25c Gatorskin on my Giant PR2 Wheel. The wheel came setup as Tubless, with Gavia tyres. The rear needs replacing so went for a Conti Gatorskin. Even using my Crank Brothers Speedier Lever plus other levers - just won't go on. Any advice appreciated.

    Continental GP5000 tubeless blow outs

    Anyone tried the new(ish) Conti tubeless variant? I've been trying a set out and while they ride well they do seem to be particularly sensitive to pressures. The Conti site quotes a recommended 65psi (for 28s) and a maximum of 94psi. I inflated mine to 78 psi in error and they just blew off...

    Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Vectran vs Continental Gatorskin Tyres

    I'm looking at upgrading the stock Schwalbe Lugano on my new road bike as they are budget tyres and don't seem to have a good reputation. I'm mostly concerned for grip, wet weather performance and puncture resistance. I'm less concerned with weight and speed. I've been looking at the...

    Schwalbe or Continental?

    I appreciate I may be starting an argument second only to a h*lm*t thread, but here goes... I've been happily using Schwalbe Marathon Plus and Marathon Plus Tour tyres for nearly a decade. In that time the only real punctures I had was one caused by 'user error' ie me overloading the Xtracycle...

    Continental brakes - Wrong way round

    I'm based in the Czech Republic and the brakes on bikes here are the wrong way round. i.e. right lever is rear brake, and left is front. Took a little bit of getting used to at first. Anybody know why they are like this?

    Carlton Continental Frame (1970's)

    I picked up this 1970's Carlton Continental Frame locally, 25 1/2 inch. I'm hoping to build it into a Winter bike with parts mainly from another bike. Seems like a heavy, solidly built frame, "tru wel" tubing apparently (Carlton's cheapest gaspipe?) I've ordered a couple of Carlton...

    How does a Pro Continental Team become a World Tour Team?

    If a PC team gets consistently good results can they get 'promoted' or is it about financial commitment/clout?

    Is there a better tyre than a Continental Gatorskin for a road bike?

    Mine have now done 6500 miles with one puncture. Because back tyres tend to wear more I swapped back to front after 3000 miles and they are still riding well. They may not be the lightest but I'm really impressed. Is there a better tyre for longevity and puncture resistance?
