    Avoid Schwalbe Marathom+ tyres and anything made for Specialized and you should be OK!

    Michelin Pro 3's are great, if a liitle more fragile than the Pro 2's before them!

    I was referring to the Specialized range of tyres.

    Clothing Seems OK in my limited experience.

    Frames? Limited to experience of a Tricross Comp.
    IMO - bad brakes, heavy, poor tyres - slow & prone to punctures, heavy/harsh wheels with soft aluminium freehub (severely cut up after a 1,000 miles) , LH lever broke at 1k miles (Shimano) and soft paint finish.

    Now up to 4.5k miles and put away for the summer.

    I've changed the wheels (only Shimano RS10's), 23mm tyres - big improvement. About to convert to mini Vee's to improve braking power.
