I went ahead and bought some new low Crr tires (Vittoria's)
to replace the existing Conti's. I called my local bike shop thinking
that perhaps I should have a pro do the install instead of learning
to do it myself. They wanted $100 for the pair to glue on the tires.
That's nearly as much as I paid for the tires. Is that really the
going rate? Seems like it makes sense at that cost to figure out
how to do it myself (I've seen youtube how to install videos).
Anyone have any advice on this front? Is my local shop likely
to do a substantially better job than I will on my first try?
