    favorite tires/tubulars

    My personal favorite clinchers are the veloflex pave, now called the black I believe. Otherwise for longer lasting I ride the Pro2 race.

    What do you all ride on?

    Vittoria KX tubies for my Amer. Classic Carbon38's and Serfas FPS for my everyday wheels. Never flatted on Serfas and have run over tons of glass and just about anything else you can think of.

    Never run tubulars, but for clinchers I prefer Continental GPs in 700x25.

    For tubulars, veloflex are my favorites--the criterium is a great tire and the wider roubaix (24) is nice for rougher roads or more general riding. I've heard good things about the carbons too (that they're very similar to the criteriums), but I've never tried them.

    Tubulars = Vittoria CX. I used to love the silk ones but they're too hard to find and cost too much nowadays.

    Like everyone, I have my favorites too. I just have to ask though...why didn't you post this on the wheels & tires forum?
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Not sure really, thought people might link their fav tire to a great deal on them.

    I can think of two reasons. More people tend to circulate around general discussion and they tend to be more representative of the whole RBR group. I think that the tubular/clincher proportion in wheels & tires is way off from the rest of the population.

    I dig the Veloflex Corsa. It's 700 x 20 and comes in a little higher TPI count (I think). Pulled staples and all kinds of stuff out of 'em without flats.

    Veloflex Carbons on both my Bontragers and Zipps.
    2nd place is just the 1st loser
