In a preivous post, I had mentioned my skepticism of the Grand Bois Cypres Tires. Well, because of our cross-country move, I had forgotten to order some new tires for PBP. In a pinch, I decided to use my old Grand Bois tires and rotate them. I certainly was hoping I wouldn’t regret this.
Well, I had only one flat, which was much better than expected. So, to sum up my Grand Bois experience–about 2000 miles, 3 flats and $140. With the amount of miles I did this year, that would be almost $420 per year in bicycle tires. Of course, you can order a year’s worth and save some money.
I think I will continue to search for better options. Besides, I can buy a decent used hardtail mountain bike with that amount of money.
