So to summarise, @Serkie measures his Master 25's at 24.4 on a 20mm internal rim.

These tyres are thin A-F.
Gen 2 is 21mm, I'm just doubtful as the rim is half a mm wider than mine at 20.5mm and my Masters measure 28mm at 75psi/50km old.

Those 25mm Masters, or 28's?

But the same 25mm tyre simply shouldn't measure the same on a 14c rim as a 20c rim - even allowing for 1-2mm of stretch.

What I was getting at RE: the Italians is their reputation for poor QC and poor tolerances. It's quite possible you are both right and simply have tyres from different batches :)

Italians design really great stuff, but their manufacturing (and warranty/support) falls short. I include Campagnolo in this (lately). Some of their stuff I bought in the last few years the finish was absolutely dog-awful and it got sent back.
Funny you classify a whole country production QC as a whole, and still want to be taken serious. Troll no, uber troll.

- The nice thing is that all shops are now DISCOUNTING THE CURRENT VELOFLEX MODEL. So I just received today 2xVeloflex master 28mm for 64€ VAT and shipping included!!!
good call. picked up 4 corsa for 96Eur inc shipping :up:
where?
ebay from Germany, bike-palast
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. :thumbup:
