No, they are prety true to size. Not as plump as a 4000

much better price here

https://www.backcountry.com/vittoria...e-clincher?s=a


and then get 8% off on active junky

https://www.activejunky.com/invite/215884


(use my link and we both get money back so even a bigger discount).

and free 2 day shipping if you buy a pair.


oh the awesome price is for skinwall only, on all sizes but why would you want something else.

I am in for some but don't know if I should get 25mm or 28mm. I have heard that they are bigger, the 25mm goes to 27 and the 28 goes to?!? Anyone has measurements on a 23mm rim?

Even cheaper. I picked up a few a month or so ago.

The 28mm tires measure 27mm on 20mm OD rims.

I really love how these look so I am tempted. I want some tan-walls.

But they are a bit heavy compared to say a conti 4000

don't be silly, spit before you get on your bike and the weight difference is sorted. these tires don't feel like turds the way contis do. although ive heard contis work for bigger dudes, not for small guys.
and they look way better.
i rode contis for a year because of the speed reports, then i got on other tires and don't look back.

Went with your link and the back country deal since I've ordered from them before. If some one hasn't ordered from them before, and wants $10 off, pm me your email, and I'll send along a friend coupon!
