I just called, we can mix an match the 650's and 700's.<br><br>
I'll drop the initial funds and you all can pay me for the tires and shipping.<br><br>
These are great tires at a great price.<br><br>
BTW, I have NOTHING to do with this company, I'm just sharing a great price for tires.<br><br>

I know nothing about tires. I have Vittoria Zaffiro, 700 x 23C on my bike. Are these Michelin tires something I can use?

I can buy my LIT hat too. Even Steven. I'll even put on an O/W swim clinic AT GCT for free. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Including transition. This time we walk the course a little more and maybe pile in the truck for a look at the bike course.<br><br>

I also know nothing about tires. I have Continental Ultra Gatorskins on my bike. I bought the bike used, so that's what was on it. How do I know if I need new tires? The bike is 4 years old and probably has average mileage. The Michelins sound like great tires at a great price, so if I'm gonna need tires any time soon, I might as well get some. DH has Vittorias on his Felt (stock tires), but they have VERY few miles on them. He bought his bike used, but the guy he bought it from hardly rode it. He's had it less than a year now and hasn't put very many miles on it at all.<br><br>
Oh, I don't have a trainer, so I don't need extras for that just yet.

By the time we were walking the course last year we all had sunburn...it was HOOOOOOOOT!<br><br>
We'll pile in your truck...for margaritas after the race!<br><br>
Can we go over the bridge and bang on cowbells when we get to the top? I can supply the cowbells!<br><br>
Let me know if you need me to bring chalk!

Kelli, look at teh tires and see if you see any "bald" spot or sptos where you see thread. If you see thread you past the opint of needing tires. If you flat a lot you need tires. Look the tire over, it'll look worn.<br><br>
I get about 3000 miles on my tires and then I replace them. Some people get more and some replace them before that.<br><br>
jr might be able to say it better than I.<br>

I'll make sure to bring my cowbells, too.
