I only wish that was the reason . Twas a 27 mile ride, tire started feeling squishy at about 21 miles in. I pumped it up it felt good but went flat again shortly after. I averaged about 17 mph for the ride.
bought the michelins from a friend who was closing his shop and selling at bargain prices. I am now looking for something in the 25 - 28mm range. Cannot find the conti top contacts I love in 28 anywhere.

you must have me confused with Aurelius, he is the fast guy from florida.
