Bontrager Race Lite Hardcase

29 March 2010

These are the new tyres I have bought.  The shop did not have any Armadillos which I already knew, so I got a pair of these.  They are supposedly quicker than the Armadillos but I need to see if they are as rugged.  I am sure I changed my tyres last in July so I have got about 8 months usage out of them.  We’ll see how long these get.  Forecast is for rain tomorrow and I am doing 50km.  Yuck!!
