Howdy, Noticed the other night that my rear tyre is getting a little, er, thin and am now in the market for an upgrade. Can't complain really as I've had about a year and a half and about 3k miles out of them. The bike came with Vittoria Zaffiros, and from what I can glean from magazines etc Vittoria or Schwalbe seem to be the way to go (unless there are any other opinions!). Now, I currently do around 70-100 miles a week, mainly at the weekends (i.e., not commuting) and my understanding is that this is probably a bit much for more race-like tyres such as Ultremo ZXs or Open Corsas. Is that right? Will they just get ripped to shreds in a few months? I'm doing a 100 mile sportive at the end of August too, so p*ture protection is pretty important. Also, is there actually much to gain from spending a few more pennies on e.g., Duranos or Rubino Pros as compared to more standard stock tyres like I've got at the mo? For ref on appropriate spec levels etc, this is my bike & I've upgraded the wheelset to Campag Zondas this year. Cheers muchly!
