I have: Gently used 700x28c Vittoria Randonneur Cross Tires for sale.
Only ridden on them three times the last week of April: once up to the Uniontown Summit, one CTC and once to OTB, 440 miles.
I would feel like such scum returning these to REI with an excuse such as “wore down too fast and they’re only a week old”. I don’t plan on riding on the miserable Gap until next April at this point and spent way too much money getting gear and necessities for CTC.
~$50-60? They were $40/piece or so so I’m not sure if that price is too low for gently used.
i have a pair of the exact same 700x28c Vittoria Randonneur Cross tires. they treated me well while they lasted, but they were a bitch to get on the rim and they seem to wear *ridiculously* fast. maybe i over- or under-inflated them and did this to myself. maybe im too much of a fatass and that shortened their lifetime. in less than a year, i wore TWO rear tires down to the warning strip. i think i had <800 miles on each.
im switching to a new style soon (probably tonight)… im thinking that i will go with the ribmos.
these lasted about 3000-4000 miles, or 11 months, on my single speed. they were the same ones you’re selling. that is the kevlar showing. also, i flattened those babies right down in the middle. (ignore my dirty rims)
i agree that the beading was tight around the rim. i only got pinch flats once or twice.. which was totally my fault.
i got ribmos and for whatever reason, it was easier to get the front tire on than the rear.
