Jury is still out on Grand Bois Tires

After 1300 something miles, the Grand Bois tires are out of tread. They certainly roll nice, there is no disputing that. And, I only had two flats, which is within reason. The question is, are they worth the $64 per tire (almost $140 a pair with shipping)?

Rotating is ill-advised for some reason. But, it should be better than riding on bare tread. Maybe I’ll give that a whirl as well.

I got some Vittoria Randonneur tires ($20 per tire, free shipping) in 35mm width to try out instead. I definitely wanted something different for the upcoming tour, and I got a 600k coming up as well.

I should know after the 600k if they are worth the money.
