Vittoria Competition Rally...

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

...Tubulars, I've never heard anything amazing about these, but I got a free set for "training purposes" until the team tires arrive from our supplier in the South. Are they worthy of gluing on anything? How long do they last? Etc, etc.

I've got one strapped to the back of my seat...
They are cheap and if I'm remembering correctly,
they do have a belt of Kevlar reinforcement.

I've got them on my fixed gear. They seem fine. Inexpensive, durable, albeit heavy, tire.

Yes, they do have kevlar linings, at least that's what the side of the tire says.
How are they on grip and longevity?

Grip seems fine. I don't have enough miles on mine to know about longevity.

Are the Rallies round and true? I had the Yellow Jersey Servicio Corsa tires and they were totally lumpy near the valve and didn't center very well on the rim.
