Just was looking over World Class Cycles page, and they list Clement Del Mundos at 28 mm and 330 grams, but at a hair raising $72 dollars per pop. Then there are questions about the quality of the non-italian clements. World Class also lists the Vittoria Special Paves at 27mm, 330 grams near $80. What to do, what to do?
