I have been using Conti Ultra Gatorskin for 8 years and pleased, No flats knock on wood. I ride solo sometimes and will give up some speed for durability. And with the conditions of the roads lately it might be a smart trade off. If I raced then switch to better heels and race tires.
Figueroa mtn climb?
Rob Woods Figueroa was the next day. That climb is a BEAST.
Come out for the Nov 10th Gran Fondo Fig Mtn ride!
