    Strengths:    handmade; rolls true; classic 260 cotton tubular with traditional tread

    Weaknesses:    none!!!

    Bottom Line:   
    The Steher is Continental's new branding for the old Sprinter, a classic 260 cotton tubular that was a mainstay for road and track racing for years. When Conti changed the Sprinter to the fashionable and hip new style (for purely marketing hype it seems as the new version is horrible) at least they had the good sense to keep the old tire in production with a new name and a new pedigree, harkening back to the 6-day races. I use this tire for track (training and racing) and road (racing.) Fabulous tire at a fair price. Please keep this in production!!
