Conti GP 4000's on sale at PBK

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

Even if they are delayed, it's worth paying this price now and getting them in a bit. I bought 4, should last me the better part of a year.

I've been using mine for a year. Great tires at great price.

Advice: Stock up.

Have fun!

What I meant is that even though it said they were in stock when I ordered them, if they aren't, and are a a little delayed, I don't care.

Regardless, I got my shipping notice today, so it seems that I was early enough.

I love the 4ks. I did go down turning sharply on wet smooth slimy-with-with algae concrete one time.

I dunno. Very nice tires, really good grip, some puncture resistance with Vectran, decent durability. I went to 25 cm width for my rear, but I'm a clyde, I ride kinda s**ty roads.

I like Armadillos on my MTB. One flat in 3 years. I coulda been fine, except I saw this nail on my front tire, I just thought I'd pull it out. Big mistake. I could have gotten home if I'd left it there. I thought I was carrying a patch kit. Oops-not.

Was going to buy a pair last night only to get distracted and see that they were sold out this morning... oh well - picked up an Attack/Force pair, instead, for $73. Let's hope they don't suck.

Quick question - do they send out a shipping confirmation email or is the "Your Probikekit order has been received and will be dispatched soon," all the notification that you get?

Mine arrived today. On a Saturday. Less than a week from when I ordered them. My bank did charge me a Foreign Transaction Fee of $1.32. So more like $62 for the two tires delivered. Hah hah!
