Anyone have any experience with 'em? Are they durable, how do they ride?
Thanks
I'm also curious...also, where can you find the USPS version? nmjtferraro

I've gottem about 70 miles on a pair... not much to tell yet. They ride similar to Mich. Pros... feel a little narrower. Black side-walls look VERY sharp on black rims!!

They ride and handle well, but I find them to be a tad fragile..joekm

I wound up opting for Conti GP3000's and, so far, I think I like them better.

I have about 100-150 miles on my set. Like them very much...got them with my new wheels. Previous wheels had Michelin Axial Pro. Seem to be a much grippier tire, and liek the previous poster, feel "narrower" than a 23.

Was concerned as well with the durability issue; check the reviews on this site, many have not faired well with them in this respect. But, they are a race-ready tire...

Performance has a great deal on 'em right now.
