After a couple of hundred miles, I dropped pressure down from 110/115 to 100/110 and felt increased comfort. Thinking I'll keep the 23s on for a while.

FWIW....I got out the calipers and measured the Corsa 23 mounted on a 20.5mm (inside diameter 13.5mm) carbon rim...tire measures a consistent 22.5mm on these rims.

As we talking about dimensions here...
23 Master measures 24mm, on rim with 18mm inner width.
Mounting this tyre was not easy. I used liquid soap to make beads more slippery and had to wear gloves. Mounted them with butyl inner tube and pumped to 9bar. Hope they will stretch with 48 hours and then I can slide latex tube in.
Any tips how to dismantle one bead without levers, to change tube?

I'm looking for some new tires and i'm down to 2 candidates. The Veloflex Corsa or Vittoria open corsa evo cx. Wich one to pick guys?? (the vittoria's are €10 cheaper a piece)

I've ridden the veloflex carbon tubulars wich i loved, but no experience with their clinchers. I miss the smoothness of the veloflex with my current tire (Bontrager R3).

Veloflex....the CXs aren't that great. Look for the SC or SR

Hi,

Veloflex it is then. As said before, pop in a Vredestein latex inner tube and you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between these and the Carbon tubs.

Ciao, ;)

Has anybody had a chance to measure Corsa 25 on wider 23mm rims? Archetype would be perfect :)

Cool, thanks for this.
With the R5 you have to be very careful ;)
More comfort on the back is always welcomed.

For the records, 23mm Corsa on the Archetype measures 24.3-4mm.
