If they are 2900tpi and not as smooth as other tires, you need to get your money back!

Very nice tires or a vintage bike IMO.

I'm thinking of building a set of basic tubular wheels just to see what tubular tires are all about, but before I dive in to this project, I wanted to settle on which tires I should use.

I want something inexpensive, but reasonably durable. I will be using them on some terrible roads so they need to be puncture resistant and high volume (25mm+).

Due to my limited budget, they need to be inexpensive.

Would the yellow jersey tubulars fit my needs?


I've just received a bunch of yellowjersy's corsa's.

    They are dead round and uniform.
    Easy to glue, though the base tape requires more glue than my Conti Competitions.
    They seem very flat resistant (lots of flint here in Denmark, nice veloflex or vittoria clichers are guaranteed to flat after a rain shower).
    The roll very nice at 7(front)-7,5(rear) bar. A bit bumpy when i increase the pressure.
    After 1000km i can't se any signs of wear on the rear (82kg). My Competion's where starting to have a flat end profile after 1000km.
    They are not as fast Competitions or even Sprinter Gatorskins, but not slower than a decent clincher at twice the cost (Michelin Pro2Race, Vredenstein Fortezza's or GP4000S with butyl tubes). Last year i switched from Michelin 25mm Pro2Race and rode 25mm veloflex clinchers which are faster then the Yellowjersy's.

For their cost even including postage to Europe + danish sales taxes (25%) they can't be beaten. They are much nicer that other training tires (Giro's, Rallye etc).

only disadvantage: they are only available in 21,5mm.

I did ask Yellowjersy if they had plans to sell a larger volume version, this is their reply:

"We looked into a wider tire but we aren't confident about the volume.
It comes in about 3x the cost under our best projections so we stopped."

Wow...I may just give those Yellow Jersey tires a shot. My rear Sprinter Gatorskins are close to being done. They are not much wider than the 21,5mm.

Went for my first ride on Vittoria Corsa Elites on the weekend fitted to 50mm carbon wheels. They are butyl tubed with a 290tpi thread count. Whilst they are not as smooth as my Vittoria CX's they still provide a better ride than my clinchers. Grip appeared to be fine in damp conditions too.

+1 although I'm not shure I can feel the difference most of the time :oops:
