switched to veloflex paves, per my bud JG - best/best/best! have veloflex carbon on campy hypercarbon tubie rims - in waiting!

will replace the pave clincher with pave or black, when required.

if the carbon tubies ride like the pave's - "don't get no better!"

I used the same set of Pave 185 gram ones for two years and put a few thousand miles on them. The rear had some wear, the front looked very good when I swapped them out for some wider tires. I found they seem to wear surprisingly well.certainly as well as the Vittoria tires I used to use, in spite of the fact that the VF tires were considerably lighter. Not very prone to flats, either.
