In this Ask a Mechanic, brought to you by Art’s Cyclery, VeloNews, and Greg O’Keefe, Anthony asks how to select the appropriate type of road bike tire. Tire selection can, and usually does, involve selecting TPI (threads per inch), rubber compound, tire bead, and whether or not you want to run tubeless, clincher, or tubular tires. In this video, Greg discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Jump on over to Art’s Cyclery and explore your options.
