Re: Tire recommendation
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I average one flat every two years with tubeless. More than two years with the Schwalbe Pro Ones. They roll nice and are lighter than a tire and tube.
Bought a pair of Mavic rims a few years ago and they came with a complimentary set of Mavic Tubeless tires, stems and sealant, so no cost trial. Nice tires, but the Mavics wore quickly, then they sprayed sealant, or rather wept a bit. Eventually switched to Schwalbe and excellent wear. They actually have three layers in the sidewalls, which can be a tires weak point. They have some sealant layer, and i add air once or twice a week. Even handled a 6p nail one day. Pulled the nail out, let out a little pressure, spun the tires a couple times, and was good to go. 20 seconds vs 10 minutes. I usually pump them up to 92 psi.

Check out the detailed comparisons.
If your bike allows wider tires, I recommend getting 28mm.
I recently bought Continental GP5000, 28mm wide,
Great deal online from Excel Sports, Boulder, CO. Free shipping for over $99.
For those who don't race but love to ride on tarmac (not gravel) and not get flats, what do you recommend for tires?
