Strengths:    Durability, very puncture resistent! Low rolling resistance. Excelent finishing.

Weaknesses:    None that I could notice. The only bad thing is that they are a bit difficult to find in stores.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing product. Certainly the best tire I have ever used in my 10 years experience. One detail worth mentioning: mine are labeled Hutchinson. You will find Veloflex tires under a variety of names, and even unlabeled, as pro teams erase it due to sponsorship deals.

Strengths:    oh man they are comfortable as hell. rolls real nice, plenty of grip. love the black sidewalls.

Weaknesses:    wasn't cheap, not the lightest, but okay, I'll take the tradeoff for a magic carpet ride. plus why cheap out on tires if you're spending a k or so on your set of fancy hoops?

Bottom Line:   
I got a pair of these after plenty of research and coming off a set of veloflex black clinchers (best clinchers i've tried so far) for my new easton ec90 aeros. I had a very good experience with the blacks so I gave these guys a try. super comfortable, very well made, straight and mounts pretty easily.

Carbon Frame Damage

I am trying to determine if I need worry about some frame damage on the seatstay near the rear dropout on a 3-year-old Raleigh RXC carbon cyclocross frame. Anyone know how the aluminum dropout is attached to the carbon stay and if the damage shown in the pictures is or isn't a problem? I am assuming ... Read More »

Differences in carbon layups/manufacturing

I have been doing a lot of research on road bikes and have come across a confusing aspect of the carbon frame world. Several prominent brands have several different carbon frame types and others appear to only have one. Trek: 300, 400 , 500 series, etc Specialized: FACT 8r, 9r, 11r, etc Cervelo: se ... Read More »

New carbon frame with older components (crankset question)

I'm seriously considering picking up a carbon frame and transferring my 9-speed DA7700 group. The new frame has a 68mm English threaded BB, so I'll need to choose a new BB and crank. I've been looking at Shimano cranks, wanting to stay with a 53/39 130 bcd. With the new proprietary Shimano 4-bolt p ... Read More »

Done (I think) with Look Keoblade Carbon Pedals...

The darn squeaking noise is driving me nuts. I've tried many of the suggested tips on how to potentially quiet them down, but none have really worked or lasted. I've had my local mechanic confirm that the squeak was coming from the pedals and not anything else. Although they worked fine initially an ... Read More »
