Road Cycling - Open Tubular - Challenge Gara & Criterium Tires - very odd!!
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Picked these up for next to nothing earlier this year and they've just been sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Just opened up a box and I had to stare at 'em for a while to figure out what the hell they were. At first I thought they were tubbies but no, not quite. Took me a while to figure out the trick to mount them but now they're on and inflated. Will have to see how these suckers feel this weekend.
Here's a link:
Anybody have experience with these?

never even knew they existed, sounds pretty cool though
Nothing new really... Vittoria open corsa evo's are the same thing. Just a high TPI count clincher.
Tufo makes a 'tubular clincher' if you really want to get confused. They're like a tubular glued to a strip that fits a clincher rim. Max PSI is like 175.

Let us know what you think. I was thinking about getting a pair because I get a good deal on them.

Anyone have any good things to say about these tires? My LBS is running a sale on them and I can't find a darn thing about them on the internet.

They are awesome tires, basically they are Clement tires, they are made in the old Clement factory.
