    Starting to see some decent Ebay prices on these but I'm looking for real world experiences. Especially how well they hold up and how to deal with flatting etc.

    I rode them and found they were pretty average. Punctured pretty easily and were not really that fast. That was a year or two ago so they may have improved.

    Definitely try them. I have run the last two seasons on them and think they are great. I went with the top of the line Elite Road and put the sealant in as a preventive measure and only flatted when the tire was toward the very end of its life cycle. The high pressure is great especially since I am not the flyweight I once was. I tried the Giro Twix just recently and think it too is a great tire, although it only comes in 21mm and the Elite Road comes in 23mm. The only gripe MIGHT be the mounting which can be a bit of a pain, but not much worse than mounting a Michelin brand tire and you may be more mechanically inclined than I am.? I know the Pez cycling news site has some reviews and they are positive too. Durable? I have hit holes and rocks that I KNEW were going to flat me but didn't. Good Luck
