Bought a used tubular wheelset over the winter and plan to buy a spare set of tires so I don't have to patch them immediately when I get the inevitable flat. Based on a BF forum search I was thinking about a pair of Vittoria Coras EVO EX. A friend with a QBP account mentioned that 2010 stock is 50% less than 2011 stock.
Should I buy 2010 or 2011 stock?
I ask because I was reading some non-BF reviews and it sounded like there may have been some quality control issues recently (e.g., valve stem tearing at tube, flat prone, etc) and the 2011 model is touting a new latex tube that is more flat resistent. I'd like to save some $ but not at the risk of buying defective product (negative reviews were saying Vittoria was not acknowledging any issues with 2010 product as well).
