    vredestein fortezza tricomp

    i hear a lot of goodness about vredestein fortezza... does anyone ride on the tricomp version? how do you like it?

    also, any links to WHITE fortezzas would be nice.

    lastly: how do you pronounce "vredestein fortezza" anyway?

    the fortezza tricomps are great tires, but do not skid or even skip on them much at all, they will not last -- too soft.

    Fortezza is Italian, I presume. Therefore: for-TAYTZ-zuh. With rolled r's, etc.

    Vredestein is Dutch, and I don't know how to pronounce Dutch (or Flemish, which is essentially the same thing).
