We've got about 90 days of riding weather left in Newtown, PA, and I need new mountain bike tires. The old, reliable Continental Double Fighter on the rear wheel of my bike has started to develop holes in the center of the tread. I'm bound to start getting flats long before I do the Tour of Hope Fundraising Ride in Washington, DC in October.
Continental doesn't make the Double Fighter anymore, otherwise I might buy two new ones. Performance Bicycle has a new semi-slick tire that looks a lot like the Double Fighter that I decided to try. They're called Performance Topo FasTrac MTB Tires:
The Topo FasTrac Mountain Bike Tire is on sale at Performance right now for under $20. I'll put two of them on my bike and see how they ride. If you need replacement semi-slicks now, it's going to be hard to beat this price.
