    Contis are good, but they're ugly! ;D
    I personally like Vredensteins, and you can pump them real hard > 125 Psi. If you cycle like I do, almost each day 30-40k's. and still race over week-ends, they'll last you about a season, then you're on full slicks!

    well previously i have use and still have on my old wheels Michelin Axial Carbon these are a skinny training tires which last longer than racing tyres 4000 - 6000k iv had them for 2,500k and they still look good. For: great training ,good speed. AGAINST if you are going down a mountain and there are hard corners and a bit of loose grit on the road thes tyres are very unstable and sliippery. other than that they r great so if you dont live or do mountainouse rides at all get them.

    Michelin Axial Pros these are are good for racing and riding too. Good feel, still need to try them out a bit more they last less long as my dads rear michelin axial lasted 2000k and the front should last 3000(less force) ;D ;D

    I got Michelin Axial Kevlar on my training wheels. Last forever. 4000 so far and still going strong.

    My tires might not live up to the quality you guys sport...but my new schwinn came out with Kenda Kampaigns (sounds corny, huh). They look dog ugly, but they perform great :D

    My road bike ( Nishiki Century, compact frame) came with Kenda Kwest. I rode in the rain today and they worked great, my computer (Cytec VDO C08) said I was going 27.02 MPH and I was suprised that I didn't crash. Kenda does make reasonable tires but I will upgrade to Hutchison Pro Carbon or Hutchison FLASH.

    It always seems like Kenda uses 2 K's in there product names

    example: Kenda Kwest, Kenda Kampaign:confused: :D :D :D

    My money goes for Vredestiens too , mine at 145lbs perform very well and hold up a lot of mileage, and are as comfortable as most -20lbs tires I've tried

    Other comparable quality tires are Shwalbe Stelvio, these are their high-end product and hold up very high mileage

    Update on my post above.


    I now have a Trek 1500 and I think all Kenda tires are Krap (get it:D , kenda tires always have two K's)

    I have Bontrager Race Lite's, they are awesome, when they wear out I will get Michelin Pro Race's or Race X Lites
