i think you're late on this discussion by about 5 months.
though, now that it's been bumped:
i just put an order for a set of conti attack/force on my shop's weekly qbp cart though after doing some research, i've been told that using cheaper vittoria ultra speeds or conti super sonics will do the same/better job cheaper and longer (due to tire rotation which you cannot do with attack/force due to directional rotation and specific front and rear tires). that said, one of the guys in the shop runs attack/force and he says he's got nearly 1200 miles on it, commuting that is.
edit: i ride at northbrook which has painted concrete and relatively shallow banking.
