Strength:

Great rolling resistance

Weakness:

puncture prove - do not ride in wet on London roads!

Better solution is 23 Cpnti TT front matched with a 25 Conti GP 4000s on rear.

Strength:

front tyre is still going strong

Weakness:

rear tyre disintegrated after 500km, not impressed.

bought these at my local supplier fitted with excitement and high expectations (always use Conti GP4000s), after 1st 100k ride rear tyre showed extensive signs of wear, showed the supplier, shoulder shrug, hmm. carried on til just after 500k the rear was nearly all white internal thread showing, I took it off and binned it. I would imagine it was a faulty batch, but I won't get them again although the GP Attack (front) is still going strong.

I've been using Panaracer RibMo's 23c front & 28c Back on my Cinelli Mash V2 Bike and i've recently decided to try the 2011 Continental GP Attack 22c Front & Force 24c Back. I was worried that its going to be tough to mount onto my wheels as i've read on the blogs but mine went it quite smoothly without incident. (without me accidentally cutting the tires with my tire levers!) I've discovered to use spit on the levers as lubrication and it works wonders.. :-p

The first ride on these GP Attack & Force was surprisingly smooth! Smoother than my RibMo's which i like very much... and the vibration seems to lessen with the Conti's. Best of all... it keeps wanting to roll and roll and roll.... i feel like i am going faster and i am!

I've paid about USD95.00 for the pair and its worth the money spent. I paid USD80.00 for my pair of RibMo's and its pretty good but i never thought the rolling resistance is so much difference to the Contis. And the first time i applied my front brakes, i felt that the stopping power is much better. I thought my brake pads were rubbing on the tires and check to make sure but it was not. So braking has improved too. I am now officially in love with my Contis but i am still a little worried about the weakness of these tires that i've been reading on other peoples review... i am waiting for a puncture to happen and sidewall to rot! Let see... hope this new model has addressed that problem.
