|Love my new Ultra Gatorskins||Mr Nick|

|I recently took the advice of friends and purchased some Continental Ultra Gatorskins (700x25c). I run the recommended tire pressure of 95psi and am amazed at how comfortable these tires are. I was running bontrager race lite tires at 120psi (700x23) and didn't think the change in size and pressure would make that big of a deal, but man was I wrong. The bike is so much smoother and less harsh now. If anybody is thinking about getting these things, go for it, you'll love them.|

|Much better than those oh so wonderful train wheel-like Specialized Armadillo's that feel inflated even when flat! They have absolutely no sidewall compliance. At least the Conti's give a relatively nice ride.
I still like the Conti Grand Prix 4-Season's for all around riding. They've been excellent in the flat department as well as slow to wear out. Excellent all around traction, too.

|In my opinion they are adequate, but not much more. I have a pair (700x23)on my beater bike. They seem a bit sluggish, probably due to lack of pressure, and the only flat I had this year was on the rear one soon after I got them.|

|I agree. Good puncture resistance, but a slow tire. Comfort is adequate, but not as good as others I've tried.|| |
