My new favorite tires.KG 361

I rode 37 miles yesterday in rain/drizzle/sleet/snow. I've been using the Panarace Stradius Pros now for about 2 weeks. These tires are great. Not once did I feel like they were going to come "unglued" from the road. Nice smooth ride, too. They even gripped when I had to stand out of the saddle to climb several steep pitches. Thanks for the advice from a fellow poster several months ago on these tires! Best yet, I paid $60 for 4 of them. =)
Great looking new bike..Dave Hickey

Very sweet ride. I saw your 271 listed on Ebay. I'm sure it will sell high.
Thanks Dave.KG 361

You have a 361 in your stable, don't you? I really like it's ride. I've never been on a 381 but I can't imagine it being substantially better than the 361. If it is, it might be better than sex!
Thanks Dave.Dave Hickey

I've never owned a 361. I've owned a 241, 281, and 286. I just bought a KG76 that I'm going to convert to my rain-commuting bike. Did someone buy your 271 with "buy it now"? I didn't see it listed this morning.
Nope. Still no bids.KG 361

I know how this goes, though. Last time I sold a bike on E-bay there were no bids until 20 minutes left on the auction, then things went crazy and it sold for more than I expected.
It will sell.Dave Hickey

My KG241 sold for $350. I paid $500 and rode it for 2 years. I was happy with $75.00 year:-)
And they're off!KG 361

1st bid, 5 days to go. Gee, what to do with the $$ ? =) Carbon crank, new shoes? Aaaahh, the possibilities! (Actually, I'll probably just use it to help pay for the 361.....)

I've got a pair on my main ride and really like them. I've also got a pair of Stradius Elite on my SS and they seem equally as good. These are an excellent buy, even when not on sale, but for $15 a piece they're unbeatable. Cambria had them for sale but I see they're gone now. Glad I got four.
Yep, you're right!KG 361

It was you, and that's where I got them. Thanks again! I thought after using Vredestein tri-comps that I had finally found great tires. These are at least as good and hopefully they'll outlast the Vred's.
