I thought about getting some bike gear with the ebay promo myself. However I just settled on putting the 28c on my road bike which is why I was looking and found this sale. Applause

What are the differences between the first two tires? Folding and non folding. I have a low end ($400) bike that I would like to put these on.

Can I use these for my Diamondback Trace Sport, or are they way too skinny? (I think the originals are 700x40?).

I wouldn't recommend Gatorskins. I run them on my commuter bike and need an excuse to replace them. They don't roll very well and you can get much faster tires with nearly as good puncture resistance (and better sidewall protection) like Michelin Pro4 Endurance v2. Check out bicyclerollingresistance.com for stats.

Folding tires are lighter and can be folded (so you can easily carry a spare). I would suggest a different set of tires if you want to improve your bike though, something like the Michelin Pro4 Endurance v2 or Continental GP4000sII. Gatorskins may be better than the crappy tires that come with low end bikes, but for that price you can do much better.

You can almost always go skinnier unless your rims are extremely wide. However, you need to consider what kind of riding you do, because off-roading is better on wider tires, and you may need tread. 32mm is barely enough to go on gravel, plenty if you stick to asphalt. Another consideration if you're heavy, wider tires will be more comfortable as you can run them at lower pressure.

Thanks a lot! I hardly go off-road, and am not that heavy. Will get a pair... Wave

Most cycling teams have also found that wider (25mm vs 21mm) tires provide better performance. There really isnt much reason to go below 25mm.

This is why I'm changing from 25mm to 28mm. Plus our roads are less than perfect.

For that width, I've been reading about the Cyclocross guys swearing by the G-One. They love the G-One for that width:

I love my gatorskin tires for commuting and general riding. My guess is for the vast majority of riders getting flat tires is one of the most discouraging things that can happen and prevents people from establishing regular riding routines. In my experience these tires almost never get flats.

Wire beads are much harder to install they will hurt your fingers don't get them.
