Firstly I will say that I have not tried either the Mitas or the Shinko tire. There's no doubt that the Mitas is a fine tire but for me the performance versus price issue is too big. At near twice the price of the Shinko does the Mitas have twice the performance. I have my doubts. If cost isn't an issue then the Mitas would probably be the tire of choice.
Watching thread to see which direction it goes. I'm kinda looking at the Shinko 700's as my next replacement tires after I wear out my current stock. Too many tires and not enough time to ride.
