Okay, so here's a quick n' dirty iPhone pic from my ride today. I'll get better pics up (and I'll cut the steerer).

I glued up some Corsa SCs to the ENVE 3.4s. Really not sure I'm liking gumwalls on this bike. Thoughts?Image

I actually like it a lot. I go back and forth on my own bikes a lot with gum wall v black wall, but it looks classy here, imo.

I agree. It goes well with that snazzy blue paint. :thumbup:

@SLCBrandon and @dj97223 - thanks for the input. I've been riding the ENVE Classic 25s with Vitt Corsa CXs, so perhaps it's just the change that looks weird to me. The wheels are certainly much more comfortable. I imagine the wider inner is helping but surprised at the difference at the same pressure for a 25c tubular.
