Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So 1st thing 1st.. I got a flat 2.23 miles on my first ride on these. The piece of glass looked like something I've ridden over a million times with my GP4000. In defense of the tire I will point out the following:
It happened on century ride and I saw two other riders with flats before me early that morning. So I wasn't alone.
It happened with an old butyl tube. I blew up one of the latex tubes on install the night before. The latex tube/Corsa combo had no issues.
The rest of the 98 miles with the Corsa/new tube was great, no issues.

I'm ridden too long to fall for a fad or be talked into believing something, but I'm here to tell you, these 25mm Corsa's are awesome. Fast & comfortable, I couldn't believe it, the hype is real. I'm going to change out all my road bikes to 25mm Corsas, because if I don't I won't want to ride those bikes, it makes that much of a difference. Take a chance, I did and I'm glad I did.

I will look out for durability issues but I'm willing to trade less mileage for a better ride. My Contis will last forever but ride like a semi truck. Maybe a tire liner will help but might defeat the purpose, so I'll just ride like this and take my chances, it's worth the ride quality.
