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

Had my second pump chuck go bad in a year and pinch flatted after not being able to inflate my rear tire.

Succumbed to temptation and replaced with a Kuwahara Hirame HP-20 pump head.

That's funny, do you feel like you're in yellow at TdF when you wear them?

They are narrower than my Shimanos but I was looking for something that locked my foot down a bit more and these do it.

Going to reduce the saddle storage and put more things in my jersey pockets. Hopefully these two things will work well.

Two of these:
Veloflex - Tubular tyres - Arenberg

They are night and day compared to Tufo and Conti. You really don't know what a good tubie is until you have ridden these

Why did you get those over the veloflex carbons? The carbons have less rolling resistance, and are 40g lighter.

Comfort was the main thing (I have a bad back and do a lot of long distance riding) and these still roll better than most everything else out there. And they are also better than the carbons as far as puncture resistance which really sealed the deal for me.
