Flying out to sea otter in a day, I will have time to pick up a set of tire at my LBS tomorrow before the flight.
I’ve been running the michellin power competition and I love em. Weirdly my latex tube burst while I was just sitting in my apartment yesterday, luckly it didn’t pop during the race or during my commute hours earlier that day.
Long story short, I found out there’s a small side wall tear. I will patch my tire (not tube) tonight and see how it goes, but I want to pick up a new set of tires for back up. PS This is not the first side wall tear I had with this tire, did it with another set.
I’m deciding between specialized turbo cotton or gp 5000. I mainly do crits and I live in NYC ( super crappy roads)… I’m leaning more toward the GP just because it has more protection, but my concern is it’s cornering abilities.
Can anyone chime in?
PS I had the GP4000 before I love em, but the cornering is not as inspiring at the power competition.
