Thanks! This is all good to know. Earlier this year I was doing 4-5 times a week at some points, so I reckon I may wear through the nicer tires faster than I would like. The cost of replacement is...

I am sort of leaning towards the CS Elite. Other than the one that flatted,...

I don't necessarily associate gumwalls with lack of durability, unless you are speaking specifically to what is available in gumwalls in track tires? My Veloflex Master clinchers on the road were...

That was my thought. Officials didn't say jack ****, despite the fact that it happened at the finish line, right in front of the officials.

I hear you. But a 140 psi to 80 drop in less than an hour? That doesn't sound right to me. My latex tubes on the road at least stay firm for the duration of a much longer ride.
