With the popularity of the 28c Randonneur tire, mostly brought on by the hill bombers of SF, Vittoria recently decided to make a few runs of these tires in 25c. The 3mm difference between the standard Randos may not seem like that big of a deal, but people who ride street track bikes with tight angles might actually be able to squeeze the 25c tires into their rear triangle and under their fork crowns now.

The Randos offer a great lifespan for skidding and grip really well in the rain. I wish I could fit them on my Merckx track bike. I can barely squeeze a 23c on the front though.

East Coast riders can get them at Chari and West Coast riders can get them at iMinusD. Those two shops were the first ones to get them in so act quick!
