Title: Continental TravelContact City Road Tyre
Post by: aggs on December 07, 2017, 12:06:05 PM
Has any one used this tyre in 37mm or 44mm size in 700c

Advice welcome.

On line reviews seem in the main good ,with some negative too!


For use on gravel and rough forest roads with rocky sections  , with a bit of smooth tarmac to get there!

Thanks Jags.

Seem great value at the moment.

I am thinking they will be faster rolling than Schwalbe Marathon Extremes for an event coming up.  , but hopefully just as tough!

i rode my gatorskins hardshell over some rough  roads not a bother on them i even used them touring .i'm fully convinced punctures are down to bad luck  a fella could ride for years without  getting a puncture and then  bang all of a sudden  they come by the bucket load  ;D ;D
hopefully that wont happen to you or me. ;)
best of luck with the event should be a blast.
