    Idea! Good price on tires..

    Just bought a couple of Panaracer Fire XC Pro (wire bead) from JensonUSA for $9@. Not the choice for weight weenies, 680 gms (100 gms more then the Kevlar), but hey for $9 why not. I just checked the site and they sold out but expect more tomorrow

    Just in case you care, http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product.aspx?i=TI611A00

    OEM Fires. I wonder if those are the same ones that everybody was up in arms about a couple of years ago. Remember, they were made in Korea instea of Japan or Japan insteas of Korea (not sure which) and the TPI was different? I don't know if there was a problem with the tires or if they were just heavier or what. And that was a couple of years ago, so I don't even know if those cheaper OEM ones still exist, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    note that they have the teal (green) sidewalls. AND you need to order at least $75 worth of stuff for the coupon to work.

    thanks

    Yeah, I didn't know they were tealwalls, (but I'm kinda glad they are ), but I should have mentioned that you had to order $75, I was ordering a 3-bike Saris bones rack so I had that covered.

    Those Sedonas are SICK! They're the World's Largest 2.25, and ugly to the last drop. They're pretty light (<700 gm), and great for anything dry. Really fast rolling--even when ridden tubeless at 18 psi (not recommended; pretty squirmy).

    I had to toss mine on behalf of the cabbage and throw-up color, but they were nice nonetheless. I can't believe they're running for $11 now! I paid a whopping $13 per for mine.

    There is no problem with the OEM versions other than they are heavier and the casing is less supple which can affect the ride, traction and rolling resistance.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
