This is for uphill. I got the Speed G+. They measure 200g and are 22mm wide. The Veloflex Records measure 22.5 and 180g. Yup - the 22mm are wider than the 23s.

The FMB's are just too heavy for an uphill TT/race. I order 2-3 FMBs annually and have some 25mm silks with record tread that should be here in a week or two. But they will be for normal racing, not a hill climb.
