    Gathering bits for a new commuting bike, short fast commute so not looking for something armoured, just fast and a bit of fat as I’m too much of a mountain biker for skinny tyres…

    I’ve been using 26 inch kojaks for a while and pretty impressed, they’re light but yet to puncture, so tempted to go straight to the 35c version… Not sure I want to go as far as a Supermoto or similiar. But I know, essentially, ****-all about tarmac things and everything I do know is wrong so… What else should I look at?

    Gatorskin folders in 28mm or 32 mm?

    Conti Sport Contacts are amazing, they do up to 37mm and they’re super fast. Never had a puncture on mine either in 2 years of commuting and touring.


    As above, there are loads.

    35mm is kind of wide, I run 25 front 28 rear.

    I went from 26″ Kojaks to 700c Kojaks for my commute and wasn’t disappointed! As you say, great tyres 😀


    +1 on 700*35 kojaks, I have these on my commuter


    Best all round road tyre I’ve used is the Conti GP 4000s; good enough to race on, lasts forever, available in lots of sizes, bloody great.

    I’m running Conti 4 Season in 28mm. Decent tyres.


    Running cont gatorakins 25mm on my fixie. They seem fine. Went tour of flanders on the a few years ago. A few friends swear by specialized roubaix tyres. They seem to come up quite big for a given width.

    OK, cheers folks- think I will stick to the fatter end of the recommendations and there’s enough kojak-love to convince me there, sorted. Off to bikediscount!

    Schwalbe Marathons.

    They are sticky, puncture resistant and will last forever. The pluses are solid, but heavy, but that’s not a problem for commutes. The Supremes are much lighter, but more expensive (I did find some for £25 each though recently).

    I have 35mm Kojaks also – very keen.
