    Idea! Panaracer Fire XC Pros for $15

    Yup, they're the Japanese version (127tpi with Anti-snake bite) for a heckuva price at Supergo. I think the lowest I've paid for those puppies was $22, however I think I've used my last set due to the side knobs shredding off. I'm gonna give the Geax Sturdies a try.

    Unless Supergo is misleading on the version they have, they're giving a sweet deal on the Panaracers...

    What leads you to believe that these are the Japanese variety with 127tpi?

    The large white lettering on the sidewall, along with the flames.

    Yep...It's chalky looking lettering, which is unlike the Oem's. Only comes in red sidewall version at that price.

    BTW, I paid mine for $15 for each at a store about two weeks ago, and they are blue and black version not the ugly red one.

    I trust the Jenson ones a little more 'cause they explicitly state that they're from Japan and they're 127tpi. I'd get them to pricematch Supergo, if I were you.

    Nop!

    They are the 60 TPI versions. I just got 4 of em. But, I gotta say they are decent and good for the price. They look identical to the 127 TPI versions.

    I tried the Jenson price match utility and it's been fast for me before when comparing apples to apples. This one took a couple of days so I figured something was up. Anyway, Jenson said their's are the 127's and Supergo's are the 60's so no price match.

    I've never dealt with Supergo and with some of the hassles people have had with them and posted on this board I'm not sure I want to start now. I'll probably end up getting them from Jenson anyway.

    Maybe try Performance. They price matched them, but it was at their retail store. Some of the clerks there probably don't know there's a difference.
