I'm an MTBer but I want some half decent tyres for my road trainer. I have taken off the nasty OE Michelin wire bead amber-wall efforts (what a struggle that was!) and my roadie neighbour has lent me some old Vittoria Open Corsa Evo-CXs, which are quite worn, to try. I haven't been able to ride any distance yet but a quick whizz up the street shows them to be surprisingly noisy - maybe that's because they are worn? Anyway for a permanent tyre I need something affordable and reasonably puncture resistant for summer rides in dry conditons - I don't see myself going out in the wet! CRC has Continental GP4000s at £22, which I'm told is a good all-round tyre. They also have Continental Ultra Gator Skins at £17 - what about these? Is it normal for a 700 inner tube to have some extra length, ie to end up slightly kinked inside the tyre? At 100 psi this doesn't seem to produce a bulge! Does it matter?
