BikesDirect.com has pretty steep discounts.

The S 33 Pro's are rated 700x21, ride more like 23's.
I'm running Tufo's on my tubulars and the clinching tubulars on a couple of clincher sets.

Once broken in (about 100 miles) they are sturdy.

I may try a set of the 25's for my gravel grinder.

If you do, let us know how they work out on gravel.

My favorites, Challenge Eroicas and Almanzos, are going through the roof as far as pricing goes.

I don't like to pay $75 for a clincher.

Where on bikesdirect do they list tires? I could use some decent tubbies at decent prices.

I suspect that he means biketiresdirect.com. I doubt that they sell Teletubbies, though.

YOur suspicions are confirmed. Too much drinking and internet.

To paraphrase the signature of a wise cyclist who posts on this forum: "There is no such thing as too much drinking; only not enough time."

I've been riding Tufos from biketiresdirect for a few years. I love the pricing. The jet specials are the only tire ill ride. Tufos have a weak sidewall. Part of the reason I stick with the smaller tire. They grip well & last longer than anything I've ridden.

That may be why mine seem to ride better at 125 and up...
