Anyone else ride Torelli PGV tires??quadzilla1

I just put them on this weekend...I was amazed at how supple these tires were! What a differnce from Tricomps & ProRaces that I've been using. The are hard to find, but found them at Schwab Cycles for $19.99 on sale. Heck of a deal if they last mileage wise. They felt a lot like Vittoria Open CX also, but I never got good mileage from them (about 1K miles).

If you like supple tires, you should try some a pair Dugast. Nothing comes close to these. Not sure if you can get these in USA however.

and Hutchinson makes nice tires. I haven't used the Carbon series yet, and held off last year due to reliablity concerns, but I've used Reflex Golds, Success Golds and Kronos, and all were supple and grippy.
I bought a pair of Conti GP3000's this spring, putthem on, and just couldn't get used to the ride. I tried 120 psi, I tried 100 psi, and they just feel dead. No comparison to the Hutchies, or Open Corsas, or Paribas (another sleeper brand).
The PGV's are supposed to last for quite a while, too, as they run thicker rubber than a lot of "race" tires.
