These tyres did not disappoint. No punctures.I now ride a road bike to work every day with Hutchinson tyres and find these almost as puncture proof but lighter. A cheap set of basic michelins gave me almost daily punctures.Going back to my hybrid now with these tyres seems like dragging too much weight and is such hard work I don`t know how I did the long ride a few years ago......



Well done on the ride.Yeah, I find these tyres are heavy but good for winter commutes when fixing a puncture on a dark ,wet and cold day is not desirable.

I don't find a massive speed difference, yes they're a lot heavier than race tyres, but I only use these for commuting where the protection is more important than raw speed. Anybody with real leg muscles from cycling, rather than finger muscles from trolling, won't notice much difference.

£31.11 on dot bike, although never used then so not sure if they are any good?

Btw, check eBay at the moment. There's been a lot of auctions for Mountain Equipment and Marmot gloves (like the Stretch, XT's etc). You may well get a pair of those even cheaper than these. I got the ME Randonee's for a Xmas gift and tested them in freezing weather for over 300 miles. Always toasty and I've got serious problems with cold hands when out biking. If you can find them on sale somewhere definitely pick them up.

Useless gloves. They stop you from giving the middle finger to drivers who think the horn is supposed to be used whenever a bike is in front of you.

Do they stop you from signing on?

Anyone getting a giro could not afford these

Actually, i'm sure its quite the opposite!!!!!

Sealskin socks (the mid thermals or whatever they are calling them this year) are pretty good at keeping your feet warm and keeping the water from the inside of your shoe from your skin. Overshoes too might be of some use. For cold, wet Winter specific MTB activity with cleats, the "best" options are the shoes/boots in the £100+ range such as Northwave Celsius Arctic, Shimano MW81 etc.

These shoes have an RRP £150, so £112.50 (or around £100) is pretty good for them. They are expensive, but they are a good investment over a number of years, especially with the sorts of winters we've had recently.

Do people who post TV, computer and mobile phone deals that cost several hundred pounds get as much stick? A deal is a deal surely?

Great glove at low price but the trade off is they don't last that long.

I have bought 3 pairs of 661, and all have worn in less than a month,

Hot from me Klis. I wear a Giro Hex and have experienced its fantastic build quality firsthand. Was cycling down a hill and cornered at the bottom in the rain; front tyre blew out and I hit the tarmac at high speed very hard. Head hit road so hard I had a massive lump, even with the helmet on. Save to say, if I hadn't been wearing it I would have died.

Good I am glad 'your' mind is made up!

Original Poster

I highly disagree :P

The tesco's direct version as you have stated, most likely is made of just polystyrene and plastic, though I am sure it meets the standards.
But comfort, weight, size/fit, durability after +1 knock are all factors that need to be taken into consideration when choosing the right lid.

Anyway, I don't need you to tell me which is better as I have made 'my' mind up already - If you want to promote the Tesco own brand as the superior class of helmet, then please be my guest.

I've only started riding in the past 18 months but have already got the cycling bug - upgraded wheels, saddle and more clothing and accessories than can now fit in a drawer previously full of 'normal' clothing!!! The only reason I keep harping on about GP4000s is because had a spate on punctures on some lesser Continentals and then I tried the Michelins which split in less than 2 months. I have heard good things about Gatorskins but most roadies on the Bikeradar forum give glowing recommendations about the GP4000s - they are probably faster than the Gators but the Gators are probably tougher. I will look at those threads you've posted though.



Ah the Team Carbon is an excellent little machine, I ride a Ribble Scuro HCR which is a fantastic bike for the money. Once you get the bug its impossible to get rid of

I do appreciate the reviews the GP4000s get and I am considering getting them as my summer tire but for this time of year I prefer the comfort of having something I think may be a little bit tougher.

Either way I know its unlikely many tyres can match my stint of 12 months/riding everyday on Marathon plus without a single puncture!

The first set of tyres you posted are just for the standard Gatorskins … The first set of tyres you posted are just for the standard Gatorskins (though the "Ultra" name suggests they are the 2009 model as they are now just known as Gatorskins). The ones I posted are the new 2010 Hardshell version.Whilst I agree the GP4000s are a great tyre I have seen many friends have issues with the durability of them. I know tyres will always be a personal choice and some quiet often luck plays a role in whether they last a decent time.My point was that this is the cheapest I have seen these tyres and surely thats what this site is about?



First point - I've been using Conti GP 4000s all of 2010 and not had a single puncture - I had Pro Race 3's before them and whilst they were faster they didn't last long at all. All of my cycling friends use the GP 4000s and the guys doing LEJOG earlier this year found them extremely reliable.

As for the posted tyres, it sounds like a bit of rebranding rather than entirely new tyre technology. I stand by my comments that the ones I have posted would be better value, even if they are a vastly inferior (I doubt it!!) 2009 model.
