    I love these tires, especially for Winter riding, and can't find them anywhere. Evidently Michelin has moved production to Thailand and can't say when they'll be back in the supply line.

    Anybody got a handle on where a stock pile might be? Thanks!

    Weren't the Krylions vanquished by Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise Crew in "Star Trek: The Movie" 1, 2, and 4?

    If you can't find them, just wait...they have to un-cloak before firing.

    LOL! I wondered if anyone would pick up on that!

    The bottom line is that the black and gray are back ordered until Jan. 03, the black and red until march 03.

    Biketiresdirect show them as available, but all they have is the yellow stripe.

    I think I'm just going to get a pair of Ultra Gatorskins and call it good.

    Thanks everyone!

    Left their home planet of Kryli just before it exploded....now the Krylions inhabit other worlds.

    That's awesome; I know a lot of folks have been waiting for them. I hope that the quality is the same as before. I've been using Ultra Gatorbacks. They've been pretty good, but I like the road feel of the Krylions better. Thanks for the update!

    There's some bad reviews of the new production Krylions on RoadBikeReviews. Anyone here have some feedback?
