I'm after some advice on what tyres to get next..

I'd prefe yellow or black/yellow if possible and preferably folding. They are for a yellow/black Scott CR1 Pro and at the moment it has the standard Bontrager's. I'll most likely go for 23's, and if it helps I'll be using them in my first Dragon sportive in June, and some Alps riding in July.

Any suggestions...maybe vittoria Rubino Pro folding?

    I'm assuming you are joking with a question like that?

    At quarter past two you were asking for advice ?

    By three forty - you'd already bought the tyres ?

    Don't bother wasting peoples time here if you arent interested eh ?

    Whatever you do, don't get the Vittoria Rubinos, they puncture really easily.*

    You might just be unlucky. I have ridden on two sets of these Rubinos over the winter(the rigid standard version) and have done 1800 urban and out of town miles without one single puncture. Maybe I am just lucky!

    Vittoria Rubino Pro is always my choice, but if you have extra money I'd go for Vittoria Diamante Pro
