- Continental GP 4 Season....is it just me?1 year 17 weeks agoEveryone who has just stated
Everyone who has just stated these tyres are great has just placed a curse upon themselves.
I run them on a dry weather only bike and GP 4 seasons on a wet weather bike, always been spot on.
It's worth checking for bits of flint etc embedded in tyre after a ride and pulling out.
That's me cursed too.

Haven't cycled in Majorca since I lived there 20 years ago. Wish I was there now. When I retire definitely want to spend a couple of months a year there, superb place in many ways.

As for CO2 I've seen them fail when used by others too many times to be convinced and then theres the fact you're paying for air which seems just wrong.

Very nice! Surprised Indurain never won the Vuelta, I only really followed the Tour in those days. Did he just not tend to ride it?
As for Wiggo, can't see him riding all three this year, BUT if he did - I reckon podium Giro, top 10 TdF riding for Froome, and then maybe he could haul himself to a top 15 finish in the Vuelta, followed by a Redgrave-esque "if you ever see me get on a bike again..." quote in Madrid.
Didn't Adam Hansen complete all three last year? And I believe Sandy Casar has said he's doing it this year, and aiming to win a stage of each tour...

Wiggo, JTL, Uran, Froome and Porte are all expected there and where Uran goes, Heano normally follows....

I found the Giant Mini Road Plus pump on eBay last week and it arrived yesterday. I have the Defy 1 and don't think I'd ever put a pump on her - it'd ruin that beautiful profile! Keep it small enough to put in your jersey and you're onto a winner. The Mini Road Plus is perfect and a work of art in itself
