Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have these on my '19 Giant Defy Advanced Pro 0 with the carbon SLR1 wheels. They were fairly easy to install by hand. The trick to getting them to seat for me is to use a spray bottle with some water and some dawn dish soap and spray around the bead area, then using a compressor, valve core left on but using a schrader adapter over the presta to fit my tire inflator. Can usually get the tire bead to seat the first time out and let the tire stay inflated for a bit. Then deflate, remove valve core and inject Orange Seal Endurance through the valve, reinstall valve core and reinflate using the compressor.

On my wheels, which are 17mm internal width the 28mm tires measure 27mm. I am thinking of going with the 30mm tires the next time. While I only have about 300 miles over mostly chip seal and rough roads the ride has been great running the front around 65psi and the rear around 72psi. The Vittorias are so much more supple and feel less rolling resistance than the Giant Gavia AC1 tires that came stock, also much more road feel and compliance. Too early to tell how fast they will wear out, will post another update when the time comes.

Recent ordered and received this jersey. Love the feel of the fabric and the shorter cut of the sleeves. Many expressed that the fit is tight, so I ordered up one size. I'm about 5'9" and 160lbs. and ordered large, but medium may have been a fit better. I tend to like my jerseys in a "race fit" and relatively snug so nothing is flapping while descending. For me the cut is about an inch longer than I like, but still fits well. Have worn it about half a dozen times so far and really like the look and fabric.
