looking for a new set of tyre to use pretty much all year round in most weather conditions, currently on 4 season tyres from conti which are great but coming to the end of there life, I've heard nothing but good about the 4000s tyres even for commuting, so was considering those until I noticed the grand prix gt tyres which I think (correct me if im wrong) sit between the 4000s and 4 seasons in terms of speed/puncture protection, anybody had any experienced with these

    clearly you have not read the thread about GP 4000 in the commuting section of this forum then... :wink:

    I have run on Conti GrandPrix GT all winter (due to that they are 25mm so feel more comfortable on dark potholed lanes) and ever had any issues with them, I do like the feel of them. Never used GP4000 tyres so can't compare.

    During summer I use 23mm Conti GrandPrix Poly X breakers with the chilli compound which feel similar but also feel faster, but that is due to the narrower tyre.

    Here you go.

  • Dwayne, did you leave your right shifter too close to a candle? It's gone all Dali. Maybe some lever Viagra is in order?

    Seriously, it's totally out of whack with the left one - laying a steel ruler across both shifters helps with the censored -eyed-ness.
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.

    It was adjusted just after taking this photo. It annoyed me too, it was the only part of the build I didn't do!
