Well, they're used but new to me. And since they were last ridden by Bart I figure they've got to be fast right? Now I just need to figure out what tires to use and I'm in business. Last year I rode Conti GP4000 and Michelin Pro Race tires. Oh yeah, I also rode a pair of Maxxis Courchevals until the rear tire sustained a huge, nasty cut in the sidewall. Right now I'm thinking of trying the new GP4000 S. Any other suggestions? I've never ridden Vittoria, Veloflex or Hutchinson rubber.
Another related question: Does anybody buy tires at the shop when you can basically get two for the retail price of one on eBay? I buy a lot of stuff at my LBS but really struggle to justify spending an extra $30 on a pair of tires.
