I had to run higher PSI than desired with my GP5K TL to avoid sidewall damage. I am 62-63kg and run 25s at 80/85 on 19mm internal rims. They measured 26.8mm average.

I'm on 28's and weight 80kg. Run 65-70psi front and 70-75psi rear. Have gone as low as 60 but didn't like the feel. On 19mm DT Swiss rims.

Is anyone running GP5000TL on ENVE 5.6 Disc wheels?

How hard are they to mount?

Thanks

Hardest to mount tires I’ve ever put on my 5.6s. Slightly easier on the rear than than the front.

mounted a set of 25's on my clx50s no problems at all.

the set of 25's i mounted on a set of DT Swiss dicut 1400 took a fair bit more persuading. had to add a layer of rim tape too.

I weigh 86kg what psi should i be trying out??? i had 95-85 on the DT Swiss and am yet to ride on the CLX50s yet.

Had my bike guy install earlier this week. He said no issues at all with install. 2nd ride today and I'm really liking them. I previously had Schwalbe Pro 1s on these wheels, and am still running them on my 3.4s.
