Hi all,

I'll be picking up my BeOne Aspire this coming Monday and will hopefully use it a few days a week on the daily commute to work. Can anyone recommend a good road tyre to use? I would be fussed on an expensive wheel set but I would like to get a tyre that will be comfortbale and offer good grip in wet or dry conditions.

    Using Schwalbe City Jets here (the 1.5 one), I know quite a few others on here are as well. Very, very puncture resistant, even over broken glass on the road, barely any rolling resistance, last for agges and cost £12 a pop.

    The only catch is they're quite awkward to get on sometimes, I swap to off road tyres at the weekends. Invest in some good tyre levers too :wink:
