Discuss light weight issues concerning road bikes & parts.
i use non-SPS version of Veloflex Corsa. 200g each for 25mm. also panaracer Evo 4 C 23mm (not tubeless).
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes.
I have two bikes and a while back put Pzero Velo (not TT), on both. One bike had allow Fulcrum zero wheels, the other Zipp 202 (probably 2011 era). I really like them. Smooth, pretty light and they seem to hold up well in terms of cuts unlike the Conti 4000's I had been running for a long time.mattsurf wrote: ↑Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:03 amSlight caveat that I live in Switzerland, where roads surface is generally excellent. Overall I have found the Velo TT to be an excellent tyre, I have probably covered around 1000 miles on them, without issue, no punctures. I used them last year for the Chasing Cancellara event from Zurich to Zermatt, 7,000m elevation (23,000ft), 290km (180miles) and for doing an Everest event - 9,200m (30,000ft) 320km (200 miles), and Etap du Tour 200km (125 miles) and 6,000m (20,000ft). Grip is good, I have done some really big mountain descents at high speed, with hard switchbacks. They feel comfortable, no complaints even after 18 hours non stop in the saddle. Despite the distance I have done, there is no significant sign of wear, however, I tend to be light on tyres.Jackofallgrades wrote: ↑Fri Jan 17, 2020 12:00 pmHow have you found them? The Velo was certainly on my shortlist.
One issue thoughj which is probably an anomoly of some kind is that after about 400 miles riding I took the bike with the zipp 202's out for a ride and noticed that the tire was rubbing the top of the rim brakes (campy 12) each revolution. Tried a few things and could not fix it. I assumed the zipp had gone out of true. Not the case. It turned out that that tire caused the problem on 3 different wheels, and the zipp's turned out to be fine. Very strange but somehow the tire developed a high spot which I cannot see when looking at it closely. Has anyone else seen this (on any tire really). The other set of Pzero's are fine, no issues.
Which rims are you running with your Panaracer Race C Evo4? How wide are they when mounted and how do they ride?

Another fan of Schwalbe One. Smooth ride and good rolling resistace. Good flat protection. Low price when ordering from the UK.Johnny Rad wrote: ↑Sat Jan 18, 2020 12:47 amAll these tyres are lighter than my favorites, the Schwalbe One clinchers (non-tubeless) which come in at ~215g/23c (and obviously more for 25c)...
- Schwalbe Ones have slightly lower or nearly the same cRR than Pirelli P Zero Velo (non-TT) @ 100psi
- Schwalbe Ones have slightly higher or nearly the same cRR than Conty 4000S II @ 100psi
Really? My 28mm corsa's inflate to 26.5mm on C17's...
Shows how crazy tyre/wheel sizes have become. Total crapshoot.
