Should I get race specific tires and tubes?
I am new to the group, I figured I would throw this out there and see what happens...
Is it worth the expense to get race specific tires and tubes? Right now I ride Shimano R-500 wheels with Continental Ultra Sport tires and use regular tubes.
Is it worth getting a faster tire and latex tubes for races? How often do they get flats? What is a good tire choice, not too expensive?
Last question just cus... Does shaving your legs make you appreciably faster?
Thanks for any thoughts!!
