I think the Veloflex Roubaix's would be perfect for your Nemesis rims. Here's a few pics I just took of some wheels I use, or am in the process of building up shortly... all Nemesis rims with various Veloflex tires from the 22mm carbon throught to the 25mm Arenberg (which is the same width as the new Roubaix)...
Image
From left to right: Veloflex Carbon (old 22mm), Veloflex Carbon (new 23mm), Old Veloflex Roubaix (24mm) and finally the Veloflex Arenberg (25mm). The Arenberg and new Roubaixs are the same tire except the Roubaix has the tan sidewalls.

Same order, just from the front...
Image


And finally, some 24mm Roubaixs mounted on a Campy Bora Ultra Two rim and an Ambrosio Nemesis rim...
Image

All nice tires but I did find the 22mm carbon to be a little on the narrow side for my liking. I prefer the 23mm Carbons and 24mm Roubaixs. I've yet to try the 25mm Arenberg (may be building those up this weekend) but I will use them for the winter. I prefer to keep my tires (and rims) consistent between front and rear. And I don't buy into the whole aging thing but it's not worth arguing about. Contis wear well as do the Veloflex. I used to use Vittoria Corsa CX Open clinchers and those things cut up all the time. I presume the tubulars with similar casings would cut up just as easily.

Enjoy your winter, I rode in New Jersey one fall for a week or so. Was really nice with all the leaves and covered bridges.

very nice .. the bora with Tan sidewall looks good, I have a first Gen BOra Ultra wonder if it will look good with tan side wall.

interesting pic of the old vs new carbon and roubaix arenberg. They look wider indeed.

I'm curious to hear how the hubs go? I've heard that they come with minimal lube inside around the ratchet & worth adding grease prior to use...

yes I've read about that, and it's the first thing I did. there isn't much inside the rear hub.

Awesome! You'll love the ride. I tempted to go with a SLR01 for 2013 but I'm really like the GF01. It is a great ride and seems a little more "stable." Either way, make you post up pics of the wheels and bike soon!
