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

Help me choose.

I'll be mounting a new set of tyres on some new rims.

To choose from,
I have Open Corsa EVO CX or Grand Prix Force/Attack.

I've tried both. No comparison. Evo Corsa CX is vastly superior.

Vittoria makes some great tires, 1st time users may find them a pain in the - to slip on their rims.
Vredstein tri Comp & Quattro are nice too.
