With wider hoops, the ride is every bit as nice as the best tubulars around.

bought some Conti GP 4000s tires, I was never happy with the ride quality (comfort wise). 250 miles into the new set, fatal sidewall cut. Looked up these tires and it seems sidewall cuts are common.

bought a set of Mich Pro 4 SC...immediatly noticed the better ride quality. 2000+ miles later, not even so much as a single flat.

(100psi, 23mm tires on 23mm ROL Race SL wheels)

Long story short...next set of tires will be Pro 4...
