I have a question about winter tires. I am riding in New England. Winter is a coming and I was wondering about tires for nasty weather. I am thinking more about Paris Roubaix type conditions. What do the pros ride in those conditions?I may build up a set of tubular wheels and mount some Vittoria Special Pave, or maybe some Michelin Winter Axial pros on my clinchers. I think 25 mm is minimum for a nice ride, and a sticky compound with minimal tread. I like to mess with tires as they keep me in touch with the road.
