Fair enough.

My opinion based on my experience with them: They look great. They're an absolute motherfucker to install/remove and get flats very easily, which is not a good combination. The sidewalls dry out and crack very easily when exposed to the sun. Don't even think about skidding on them if you're a fixie foo.

i had these on my dome bike which i rode on the road to the track, skidding on them sucks but at least they make a nice zipping noise when you do - so you know how much $$ ur burning every time.

Idk why anybody would think these tires are hard to install, I've installed and ridden many of them. Never an issue. But they are a race tire. Nice ride, great overall performance, but puncture resistance and longevity were not emphasized when they designed this tire. They are increasingly hard to find though. Id pay up.

Mine were an absolute bitch to install on vintage Mavic MA40 rims.

They've been out of production for about two years, which would explain why they're hard to find. Vittoria has since replaced it with the Corsa G+, which is a much better tire overall.

Did you try other tires on those rims? The campagnolo rims on my medici were huge pain with any tire
