I ride paved roads with a very occasional gravel section thrown in. Some of our pavement is chip seal so can be bumpy. I do not race but our group rides can get very spirited - even a little competitive. Typical ride is 40 - 80 miles. I ride 3-4 times per week. I am currently riding one 24 tire and the other is a combined 25/23 (Specialized Roubaix). I want to stay tubeless. Don't let my age fool you.

Answer: 
Big YES. Look for Elite or Tacx brands. Make huge difference in terms of reducing the noise and wear of the tyre. If planning using turbo do not spare those 20 - 30 quid.

Answer: 
There are turbo specific tyres available, but, IMO, this is money for old rope. My recommendation is to buy the cheapest possible slick road tyre available (I went for a Vittoria Rubino - IIRC I found it for £6.99). The compound is pretty hard, and the tyre is lasting well (I bought a red one to easily distinguish it from my other tyres).

For some background, I've been racing competitively in road races and time trials for the past few years, so my turbo gets a goodly amount of use. I can't say I regret spending £7 on a tyre for turbo use. Quite the opposite... :-)

Answers

Answer: 
The difference between these two tyre sizes is 2mm in casing width, 23c = 23mm, 25c = 25mm.

The extra 2mm of casing does not sound like much but 2mm added to the entire casing of the volume of a tyre can make a substantial difference. It will increase comfort, take a little more of the chatter from the road away from the bike but will increase rolling resistance to a small degree.

Best C2C tyre for a road bike

Hello, I am planning to do the C2C in late April, on a road bike. I will be avoiding most of the offroad with the exception of the "hard packed" trails. What would be my best bet for tyres (riding a BTwin Triban 5). Cheers, Lee

Answers

Answer: 
A tyre with low profile grip would be ideal for this C2C challenge.

However it appears your bike came with 23c tyres with the possibility of maybe mounting 25c tyres (depending on clearance).

The options below are worth considering.

Answer: 
schwalbe durano plus are brilliant tyres, they have the best puncture protection of any road tyre but have little rolling resistance and are reasonably light.

I've used them for thousands of miles with very few punctures riding on bad roads, light trails and cycle paths.
