La Bicicletta

Has anyone had any experience with these guys?

I ordered a pair of Continental Sprinter tires, black,
for alot cheaper than anyone else sells them.
When they arrived they had mysteriously turned grey!
when I called La Biciletta, they told me they only carry grey
and kind of shrugged it off when I mentioned that they don't
mention that anywhere and they offer colour choice when
you purchase the tires.

The tires were almost half what everyone else sells them
for but it reinforces the "you get what you pay for" feeling.

World, yeah same store in Toronto.
Dave,
At $33 per tire its quite a deal.
I don't really care all that much I just think they should have
mentioned on the site that the only stock the grey tires.
so my ride will have a civil war colour scheme, Blue and Grey
it also means I have to remove and remount 1 of the tires
since I'm NOT going to ride one black one grey tire (serious
Phred Phactor!).
