no matter how much I tried, the bead has like 10cm outside the rim and cannot be forced in
tyres are 25-622
I can fit those tyres on fulcrum rim 622-15 though
anybody know wassup with the zipp? what size are they?
how can I avoid this in future when buying tyres for zipp
There are a few wheel and tire combinations that are just a pain. Zipp build to a full 700 and the fitting is pretty close (and varies almost none as they have to fit carbon to the metal hoop). Conti build to the tight side...
Which is ok if you are in your living room, but when it is -4C outside, and you are stuck by the side of the road, your wife is at work, and it is getting dark, it is altogether less fun. Tyres do soften up with use, so it is decreasingly a problem, but I have, in the past, simply returned tyres and found ones are a better combination.

the magic wand. every tire, every time.
just got my farsport 38mm clinchers along with some new Michelin Pro4 Service Road tires.
man is it a biatch to install the Pro4 tires on there. the front tire went on just fine.. but the rear.. i already have 2 pinch flats and repaired it with the park patch. and just when it's reaching close to 85psi...it blows...
i already took the pro4 off once and put it back on.. not sure if i should do it again.
any suggestions on how to do this? hate to waste more patches.. but i don't have a spare tube laying around.
