I am another huge fan of the Veloflex tires, but at 180lbs the sizes are on the lite side for me (though zero durability problems after a full season last year), and even the 22's just don't seem to look right on the older bikes. The standard, non-TT Vittoria Corsa CX is another good one, and a little larger in volume. I've been meaning to sample the newest top-model Gommitalia clincher. I liked the Platinum sew-up. The Panaracer category 1's looked very good as classic tires, and were decent and round in profile. A grade down were the Avocet K20 roads and even the Tioga Proline F.
