They're fast and light for the size of them (they're a very big 1.5... I'd call them at least 40mm), and dirt cheap. Often even cheaper when the various online tyre repositories put them on clearance.

I'll be on a turquoise road bike with 26" wheels and 700c fenders, it looks as ridiculous as it sounds.

Well one of the lads laughed at me last night for being a wuss about catching the train late alone , but I'm game if there's someone else. I'm leaning towards the 10.41 rather than risk losing them before the start. Not terribly tall, little black bike. Anyone else?
