    Indoor or Outdoor?

    I s'pose it would be for both - all purposes really.

    I want to use the bike for TT'ing as well but want a set that would be good on the boards as well.

    Either Vittoria Diamante Pro Light or Veloflex Records in that case.

    I’m a complete convert to the Vittorias – grip and confidence levels are better then some (so called) indoors tubs that I’ve ridden. They are now a permanent feature on my training/warm-up wheels.

    I used to use the Records on my training wheels. Grip and feel is good indoors but they only come in a 20 and I find the handling gets a bit sketchy when I’m really pushing it, for example on a flying 200 effort. They’ll be fine if you’re a bit lighter and they’re a great TT tyre.

    The only ‘problem’ you’ll have with both of these clinchers is their wear rate on the road.

    There are Continental Supersonics but either the these or the Veloflex are not really for use on the road - tho' they are fast. They just are soft, top tyres with v.little puncture protection
