Brand New. Clinchers. $99 for the pair shipped to you if you paypal as a gift.

700x27c, but ride a little fatter, like 28 or 29.

Very good tires. Ungodly pain to mount in my experience, but the ride is worth it.

since a fellow Bianchi lover chimed in here, this picture is appropriate, as these are the tires in question:

Sweet CX, Nick. Had one of those Axis CXs, paint was a little less subtle. Does yours have the third bottle mount (for a "Bud", per Bianchi's website). Tan sidewall tires, and silver wheels. Win, win.

I'm hijacking my own thread, but was that the bike you rode on your D2R2 adventure this weekend?

i was hesitant to keep posting in your FS thread, but since you asked, yes. these tires are absolutely perfect for 99.8 percent of that ride too. they smooth out the rough stuff very nicely, and have excellent on-road manners too. this bianchi with these tires is quickly becoming the bike that is getting the call up lately. and yes, i have the third bottle cage:)

someone buy these great tires!

In my case, mine were mounted on some Ritchey WCS wheels that are on my Redline Cross bike. Easily the toughest tires I've ever mounted, regardless of rim.

But the ride is sublime. Worth it imo.

Only the first time. Once I mounted them, changing flats was easy.

Same experience here. Great tires. Horrible, horrible experience trying to mount them*the first time. They stretch ever so slightly, and later mountings are less harrowing.

I'll third the statements above. They were a bear to mount the first time, but really supple and easy when changing a flat on the side of the road, just experienced that last week. Thank god! :hello:

They are like big, fat Vittoria Open Corsa Evos. Very supple but wear out fast and cut fairly easily. However, they have handled some dirt and rocks so not super fragile. Worth it!

Mounted a pair of these with zero problems this weekend. Maybe 5 minutes a piece max. They were tight but with Pedro's levers it was easy as pie and no pinches. BTW my calipers show 30mm width.

Mounted them on some infamous Torelli Master rims. Painful and comical at the same time. Road great but swapped em out for fear of flatting and not being able to get the bead back on withouy a tire lever and a crowbar.

Seriously though, a great but for a very very cushy nice tire.
