Vittoria Cross EVO XG 220 Cyclocross Tubular

Most of the time I try to stay out of the equipment posts, but I wanted to provide some good feedback on a killer deal.

Last season I used the Vittoria EVO XG 220 tubular tires. I bought them last minute from some online website. They were the cheapest tubular cyclocross tires I could find. I had no experience with tubulars and thought I might as well start at the bottom and work my way up. While had my usual slew of mechanicals I never had one problem with the tires. They never rolled, flatted, or cost me any time. At Star Crossed I was amazed how they performed in the mud. When it came to a decision on tires this year I thought why change what's working. I bought a new pair of the same tires for $89. Cycling is often expensive and I get a lot of crap from friends on trying to cut corners on quality, but I think this time I might have found something.
