I ordered a pair of Maxxis Xenith Deux Categorie from Maxxis' website for $16 each...after taxes (which they charged, even though I don't live in TN) and shipping, the tires came out to about $21 each.

I then saw the $20 deal on these Xenon Hors Cat tires and ordered 3 from rivercitybikes.com...free shipping and no taxes.

The Xenith Deux Cat's have arrived and after one quick 25 mile ride, I'm very happy with them. They ride very nicely and just feel 'faster' than my old Michelin Carbons that still had some life in them. Only downer is the bright orange strip on either side of the black center tread...the orange is already dirty. There will be no such problems for the Xenon Hors Cat's, though, as they are all black.

If the Xenon Hors Cat's ride as well as these Xenith Deux Cat's, I may have to become a Maxxis convert.

I'll post again after I get more miles on these tires.
Anyone out there with more experience, good or bad, with Maxxis tires, please post.
