    wearing out my Gatorskins. any reason not to stay with them?

    mine are 700x28. wife noticed some cuts forming. they have lasted a long time..even running the concord CA goathead season..not gonna say i never flatted, but not bad. i did have a bad couple of weeks i remember.

    i am going bigger for my bike which is seeing more and more daily commuting. so Gatorskin 700x32 (foldable) are my replacement frontrunners.

    anymore tips?

    I just replaced the rear Gatorskin on my fixed gear. Wear indicators were complete gone, few cuts, a bulging sidewall and they held up really nicely. 700x23 and I got probably 8-9k miles on them. Did get a few flats here and there but that is going to happen. Replaced it with an identical Gatorskin size and type wise.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.
