Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

Spent about 3 years exclusively on FMB, amazing ride quality! Rode the Comp CX (now Service Course), Paris-Roubaix, and Paris-Roubaix Pro. When I built up my Look 695, I found that the tire clearance for 25's was hit or miss, often miss with the FMB's. Seems to be a bit more variability in size from tire to tire. When they fit, they're hands down (IMHO) the best. Recently tried both the Graphene+ and the Roubaix. Graphene's rode very nicely and lasted reasonably well. Sketchy roads last year and I got about 2,000 miles on the rear. Have now switched to the Velo Roubaix's which I find slightly better feeling on the road (my imagination?? Perhaps...). I do find that there is no variability from tire to tire and fit is fine. Honestly can't go wrong with the top offering form two of the best tubs;ar builders out there!!
