C'mon and Get Some Tires!

As much as we are a purveyor of Ribmos and Randonneurs, we do also carry a large selection of Continental tires. They are well known for their Ultra Gatorskins and higher end road tires like the GP 4000. If you didn't know, Continental also have an impressive array of Mountain and Urban/Commuting Tires.

Now that a lot of trick riders are rocking fatter tires, we have some new big ones in!

Travel Contacts in 700x37 and 26x1.75

Top Contacts in many sizes

The Top Contacts are Continental's high end urban tire. They are still made in Germany and just by looking at the construction you can tell that it is great quality. I think these are just some good looking tires. I did a little testing and got some measurements for all ya'll...

On a 700c Velocity Chukker:
Top Contact 700x42 -- 37mm wide
Top Contact 700x47 -- 42.5mm wide
Travel Contact 700x37 -- 33.5mm wide

On a 26" Velocity Chukker:
Top Contact 26x1.9 -- 46mm wide

We even have some City Rides in 700x47 and City Contacts in 700x52 (sorry, don't have measurements for these, but they are closer to the labeled size). In general, Continental makes a wide selection of tires and I'm sure we have a tire that will suite your needs. Check them out!
