That Veloflex Roubaix is 24mm and has about 50miles on it.

Thanks Tim ..

since the Ambrosio got a flat tire - replace it with Campagnolo Hyperon, trying to dial in my position, move the saddle a bit forward and lower couple mm. Tough to fit a short leg and heavy guy on a traditional frame. wonder if a zero offset post looks good on a traditional frame.

I went out today on my 2009 colonago ep in sardine red. And thought to myself I can not think of another 08/09 carbon bike that would still make me as happy as this one.i hope you will get the same experience (;

Tim,
Zipp flatted 2x first on our way to Belmar that Conti Comp has about 800 miles , then put a brand new Conti Comp you were there on our 52mile ride and flatted that brand new Comp at mile 33. then the Veloflex Paris Roubaix that has about 50 miles and the Vittoria Evo SC on the Hyperon that has about 800 miles as well. I'm trying the Zipp Tangente which is basically the same as the Vittoria I think.

These will look much MUCH better on that build, matching bottle cages would be nice too.

Brakes and crankset will look much better and perform great. I would replace the saddle too.

Meanwhile... you should do something about your 'flat tubular' issue...

yes Saddle will be replace with a Selle Italia or San Marco, need to pick the one that works for me.
as for the tubular flat, trash all of them and I'm trying the Zipp Tangente and Challenge Strada 24mm for the Gum sidewall.

Will we see the LW IIIs in action this weekend? I'll bring your Veloflex Carbon -- they're awesome rubbers...

4 flats on a weekend?
What's wrong with your roads ? Too much glass or debris ?

I fortunate here in Switzerland we have very good roads but off course after a public event ( like a techno parade ) or days with rain there is more broken glass on the roads than usual.

I flat at a once per 2 years rate which us really good. I use Vittoria Corsa CX, opens on clinchers and the tubulars.

Maybe you need to switch to gator skins even if I hear they don't have a smooth ride feel.
