For all of you heavy guys (190lbs and up) out there training on cheap tires (as you should) you no longer have to suffer! I wore out the tires that came stock on my bike and replaced them with the same model, but larger width (Conti Sport 1000s if your curious). The difference in the ride was nice to say the least! I don't know if it was that I'd worn the tread flat on both wheel, but going from 23's at 120psi to 25's at 120 psi was actually noticeable!

Cornering confidence went up and the road seemed a bit smoother today. When I wear these out (probably by the end of January) I'll let you know how the 28's in this tire due compared to the 23s (if I can fit a 28 on the front, the 25 looks tight enough).
