I can't believe how much more solid the handling on my road bike is with the new tubeless wheel tire combination.

Going downhill (chasing Lynn) at 38 mph and I felt like Lance "what's his name" slicing around the corners on the little 1 mile decent.

Also, FWIW, the owner of one of the many bikeshops in Georgetown (DC) has ridden the Hutchinson Fusion3 and Atom, and the Padrone and said the Padrone is clearly the superior tire, especially in handling.  He also said that Michelin should have a tubeless road bike tire out next year. And his was the only local bikeshop that had Pit Stop  (Vittoria/Geax) and Hutchinson's Protect'Air in stock.

I'm deserting Stan's and adopting Protect'Air for non-UST mtb.
