Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Looks like its time for new tires. Looks like I'll replace the mondos with either some PR3's or Vredstein Fortezza tricomps. (Kind of depends on price.)

Who typically has best prices and service ? Thanks!

That just doesn't make any sense, since they are usually backordered on them. I would say it was an error, but a nice deal for you.

3 orders for me so far. Two got here (Colorado) in a week or less. One took almost 3 weeks. It must have landed in customs.

on the shelf(on the floor, so nearly impossible to spot) there was only 1 left. i didnt ask if there were more. i was considering it but my bike and tires are brand new to begin with. Also i read about how these things arent really that durable so i decided against it.
