I don't think a Conti 25 would fit, it depends on rim width. The Vittoria 25 has enough clearance but I wouldn't run any bigger.
Thanks for all the comments, I still haven't weighed it as I have yet to swap to cranks and I have one more item to put on that will lighten it up substantially. I thought about buying the MCFK stem but I have something else to put on instead...

Thanks you, Kurt! Unfortunately one of my Records met it's demise after ~40 miles. While I was riding home yesterday I plowed through some glass and sliced it. I thought I could fix it and tried repairing it using superglue, another loctite for rubber, and sealant, however, it didn't work out. Luckily I have a friend that had an extra and I got it all set up so I can ride tomorrow. 9150 and the Lightweights are both awesome, though a bit grabby using my current Reynolds Blue power pads. I still have 2 Black Prince pads that are in good shape so I might try those on the front.

Why the change from the Schmolke wheels to the Lightweight wheels?
I'm thinking about lacing up a set of Tune hubs to the Schmolke 45 TLO Tubular hoops...
I'm on a set of 30 TLO Tubular rims and absolutely love the feel of them...

There is so much trash on the roads here that the tubulars are kind of absurd, especially running Records. I trashed one on my first ride! :cry: :cry:

You let Ryan coax you into baller tires with no protection... hahaha

I hate Corsa G tires as they're heavy as hell, but they ride better than most clinchers and I rode them for over a year without a single puncture.

When it comes to Veloflex, I will only ride the Roubaix or Vlaanderen tires... Carbon and Records are race day tires with little to no puncture protection. I used to flat a bunch when I started riding tubular tires. There's a learning curve to PSI and tire choices. Stay patient!

I've had really good results running my tires at or below 100psi. I weigh 175.

I live in South Pasadena and ride through DTLA and other neighboring cities to get to and from home on long rides. Streets filled with glass. Need an eagles eye to see the glass reflections in the street when riding tubular tires. I tell my clincher riding buddies to follow my lines because I'm avoiding all flat producing objects!
