Some online shops allready have the new Conti tubulars on their site, but are they available?

Anyone who works at or has a shop? Elmar?

Still in doubt between the World Cup and the Speed, both in 35mm. I have a set of pretty allround 32 Challenge Grifo's, so it should compliment those.

They are listed on glorycycles.com for 79.00, I'd check there as they look sweet.

You do?

Could you photograph them and post a picture here? I'd really like to know what the World Cup and Speed look like "in real life".

This continues to piss me off. The NA distributor keeps telling my shop that no tire will hit the US until Feb. 2009. :evil:

Can anyone that has seen the Conti tubulars comment on the volume size? Are they more toward the Challenge sizing (medium volume rounder profile), or the Dugast (higher volume slightly egg shaped)?

I got the speed in today. I don't remember if there is a 30 or 32 offered, but I got the 35 regardless. The tire is generously sized. The volume seems very good and the rubber feel grippy. I have not glued these or obviously race them, but my first impression is that Conti has some good tires coming to market. I am excited to get my hands on a pair of the world cups.
