Strength:

Cheap, usually fairly well made, good ride, classic look, grippy

Weakness:

puncture-prone, fairly heavy, to terribly durable

For a classic "cheap tubular", this may be the best deal. Sure, you can pay less for Vitt Rallys, but why would you? These tires are the perfect tire for a classic bike that doesn't get rode every day. The y have the classic look, classic ride, and they have been around for 40+ years. Why ANYBODY would consider racing on them is beyond me.

Strength:

none (unless you are tempted by the cheap price)

Weakness:

Too thin on the top, to flimsy all around

This tire is a piece of junk. I went through one to two tires a week before realizing that this is not a particular streak of bad luck. The upper rubber compound is so thin that it gets punctured and cut by every tiny bit of debris on the road. I never had so many blow ups before. I had a couple of tires that lasted only 30 to 50 miles! Those few tires that make it past 300 miles will blow up from the side walls.

Strength:

they inflate

Weakness:

lumpy, especially at the higher PSI (near 140)

These tires pretty much suck. After gluing them up, I raced on them one time and had a horrible race because I was bouncing all over the place due to the lumps on both front and rear tires. I'm guessing this is because they were cheap tires and were manufactured as such, but they could have done a much better job. I'll probably just trash these and spend my money wisely for a better pair of tubulars.

Strength:

Few. It works pretty good as a spare

Weakness:

Lumpy, can't hold over 130 psi, lumpy, wears out fast, and lumpy.

I noticed they replaced the old reviews, so let me be the first to tell you: This tire is cheap junk. If you want a well-made, long lasting and round tire, this ain't it! Conti makes these tires in Thailand, along with all the other junk tubulars. For maybe $5 more, a Tufo S22 is miles ahead. You can still find Sprinters for about $35 each at some places, which is a much better deal. Don't waste your money on thesetires-you can do much better.
