    Vredestein Fortezza Road vs. SE Road

    Anyone have experiences w/ one or both of these tires?

    Road

    The Road has higher TPI & lower weight, but also costs a bit more, any insight would be appreciated!

    I put Fortezzas on my wife's bike for years. She has blue SE on now, but the plain old Fortezza is a nicer tire. She wanted blue.

    I've run the SE tires for a couple years; they've worked out great. They hold up well, ride smooth, and are easy to install. They take high pressure. Peformance has them on sale anywhere from $18 to $26 which is a bargain. I average about 220 lbs plus another 10 lbs of gear.

    255 lbs running the Fortezza SE's from Performance. Other than the blue getting fugly after a while, I really like them. They ride pretty well, and rarely flat.

    Surly Pacer - You know what they say. "Fatties Fit Fine". They're not just taking about the tires.
