The weird weather continues on. I’m five minutes from leaving my place and it’s raining hard. I decide I better bring another pair of shoes and socks, in case they get soaked on the way to Y’s Road Chigasaki.  I leave my rather heavy camera at home, and carry an umbrella out.  By the time I’m out the door, the sun is shining and the rain has completely stopped.  Go figure.    Anyhooo…We’ve got a beautiful new special edition tire in from Continental.







It is the Continental special edition Tour De France 5000.  The 5000 is famous for it being thought of as one of if not the best all around tire in the game.  Faster, with more comfort and reliability, the Tour de France model has a beautiful cream colored sidewall and an official Tour de France logo.








It is priced at 9000 yen +Tax each.  The 5000 is made with Continental’s Black Chili Compound for the best balance of grip and rolling resistance.  Regular test wins confirms the measurable and ride noticeable difference in the quality and advantage Continental Grand Prix 5000 offers.  This is a 700×25 tube tire.  Come visit us and see it!! We are open till 19:00. We are closed on Tuesday’s. 😀
