replacement for the Top Touring

Looks like its time for some new touring tires. Trouble is, it looks like Continental discontinued the Top Touring 2000 for some bizarre reason. I really like the reliability and fast rolling characteristics of the Top Tourings. What tire is Continental now offering as a replacement? What other good tires are on the market?

Conti makes a fine tire that you like, so try Gatorskins. they roll very fast, but aren't as thick and meaty as some other touring tires.

The replacement for the TT2000 is the TopContact.
