Great deal on GP5000's from Planet Cyclery, one of the best reviewed bike tires you can buy - with one of the lowest rolling resistances. I ended up getting a price match from Bike Tires Direct (BTD) [biketiresdirect.com], their instant price matching is super easy to use AND they offer 20% off on innertubes when you buy tires from them. They currently have Conti innertubes on sale for $5.49 [biketiresdirect.com] if you're interested - and shipping is free @ $50, as well. I ended up buying other tubes because the Contis on Daily Special were a bit heavy at around 160 grams. They also have some Michelin A1 Airstop tubes that are approx 106 grams [biketiresdirect.com]that are supposedly made in France at only 106 grams for $7.43 after discount.

These are great tires, but maybe not for the kind of riding that you do and the conditions you ride in.

I once dropped $100 on a set of tires and only got 2 blocks before holing both sidewalls. But I didn't blame the tires, I blamed what I rode over.

I like them (a lot!) until a rock shears through the tire. NJ roads are very good, and then very very bad.

My everyday road tire, periodic sales at this price - Planet Cyclery, Bike Tires Direct, etc. Roll great, few flats - until they are down to about 25%, and with tubes approaching $10 each, I end up changing the tire after a few flats.

Funny... I just replaced my wife's tire. It had a 1/4" slash in the sidewall. Yeah... I'd avoid these. I figured it was a fluke. She probably only had 100 miles on that tire. Now I'm thinking I'm an idiot by replacing it with another gp5000.

Why is $43 apiece a good price for these?

https://www.probikekit.com/bicycl...suggestion

These do roll great (no comparison to Gatorskins), but they also get shredded much too easily (and again, no comparison to Gatorksins).

If you don't need fast ship, bike24 is always the best price on Continental and Schwalbe tires. Ergon stuff is a little cheaper. Schwalbe tires often cost half of what they cost from US sellers. Other stuff like tubes is also alot cheaper


Unfortunately they recently stopped availability of some brands shipping to the US like Shimano, SRAM, and RockShox.

bike24 shipping is a flat $23.20 regardless of order size so it only makes sense to order a bunch of stuff at a time. Delivery arrives inside of 30 days normally. I've ordered at least 3x from them and have never had an issue.

FYI, these particular tires cost $37.20 ea from bike 24 before shipping. Just ordering a pair of these doesn't make sense. However if you need more stuff, its near impossible to beat bike24.

Great tire for a weekend excursion on a well maintained trail, but I went back to using Gatorbacks for daily commutes

PBK is great, but free shipping is usually around $200. You can get 2 tires for $80 at PBK this weekend if you spend $125 min to hit their free ship min... but that's a weekend special, only. Normally free shipping is significantly higher (around $175 - $200).
