I use an old Michelin HiLite - a 25 I think so quite wide - which is well matured (like me
) and therefore very hard. I've used it for some time and it doesn't seem to show any appreciable wear. It's inflated to about 90-100 psi, I have no idea if this is the right sort of pressure or not, it's what I use on the road for general riding.
My turbo is a Minoura Mag (the yellow one) and it's a lot quieter than my old fan one - which blew up and send hundreds of bits of fan blasting around the shed with a big bang, quite scary!. I rather like the noise as it's an indicator of how fast you're going. I try to keep the noise at a constant pitch by pedalling smoothly which does help when you're out on the road.
As an extra, I would like to find a turbo training plan for a gentleman older rider trying to get fit again to have a go at riding time trials next year. Anyone got any ideas?
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
