Hi,

Has anyone tried the new Racing Ralph tubular tires from Schwalbe with the slightly larger casing (33 mm in 2012 vs 32 in the previous)?

I chose to look away from them this season partly based on the review they got from bikeradar (http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/ ... h-ht-39956).

Any thoughts regarding the 2012 version - are they better?

Best,

Not to hijack your thread but if anyone has tried the clincher version give us a review. How do the Ralphs compare to Michelin Muds, etc?

I rode the clincher version in 2 of 5 cx races last year, before going to tubular wheelsets with challenge grifo and tufo cubus. The clincher racing ralphs hook up well in most conditions, except in heavy mud. I ride them in when not racing.
