    tandem tires

    Tandem riders: Another tire choice opportunity has risen it's ugly head. I have Conti Gatorskins on my Co-motion, team weight 340lbs, and threads are showing through on the rear tire way earlier that I expected. We use 700 x 28's and ride "aggressively". What are your favorite tire choices and what is your weight/riding style?

    Our team weight is 300#, and we've run Conti GP3000's and Rivendell Ruffy Tuffys. We put on a set of Vredestein Fortezza 700x25's last season, and I think they roll a little faster. We ride aggressively, and live for fast descents - had 'em up to 55mph Saturday - sweet handling tires.

    We had one of the Continentals roll off the front rim two years ago - I've been nervous about them since.
