Michelin Pro 4's here , I have always had great luck with the pro series tires, great grip I change tires yearly and flats or excessive wear have never been a issue for me But then I am only doing around 12 to1400 miles a season outside on realitively good roads.

I train on whatever I can get from the local shop for under $30.

I have raced since 2011 on Vittoria Evo Open Corsas. First the "slick" in 23 mm and now the "triathlon" in 22 mm. These tires have low rolling resistance and just feel fast on the bike. I also use latex tubes when racing. They are supposed to be somewhat fragile but I have never had a flat while using them, knocks on wood.

You can't go wrong with the GP 4000S. Zillions of folks use them, including top level pros and you can usually get them for a great deal. Pro Bike Kit seems to have them on sale every other week.

We will take a peek into the lowly saddlebag to see what needs to be in there in case of emergency. Much of this may be common sense, some might surprise you, and some are simply just my opinion.

A general observation of how fatigue can be caused by so many different sources. Finding the true reason can be as simple as watching the sun rise.

One procedure for changing a tire that you might learn from, but certainly don't want to follow precisely!
