Funny thing is that this channel made a video where it comes out that tubulars are the slowest rolling of the 3.
You really need new glasses
a little tubeless-juice works wonders in inner tubes and tubulars as well.
Can a 28c tire be used on 23c rim?
Loved it, thank you sooo much for this amazing video
Kid from Stuart Little knows a lot about tyres
You show a Rubena Racing Pro Puncture’s fear Syrinx tyre in this episode. What are your thoughts on this cheap tyre? I have been riding on it for months, without any punctures and it’s very durable too.
excellent video, clear concise to the point! job well done!
Try this specialized infinities with high end tubes liners. I stopped flats cold I ride in glass thorn not one flat
really good, great job. Cheers
I am in the process of getting ready to buy a new rear tire to replace my Specialized Armadillo tires. I have slightly a little over 2,500 miles on the rear and it has a flat spot all the way around. I have a little bit of tread left, not down to the cords or anything. I will rotate the front to the rear while putting the new on the front. These are great training tires. They are bomb proof. I have not had one flat. The downside is they are heavy at approx. 400 grams each if I remember correctly.
The solution is Schwalbe One or GP4000S2. End of story
Question: if you have been running 23" tyres but want to change to 25", do you need to change rims? Or is it purely clearance of brakes and frame that matter?
Also using 23" im running 100psi. What would be comparable with 25"?
Any help much appreciated.
Lets say i have a 700 diameter wheel. Can it fit 23mm 25mm and 28mm?
does tubeless tyre is best or tube tyre ?
Errr……there’s no difference in the roads between summer and winter so different tyres for different seasons is nonsense.
Nailed it 👍🏻
Can someone give me some info about Maxxis Dolomites? I’m considering buying that tire
What’s up with the lighting in this video? Do you only own one lightbulb or are you just going for a dramatic effect?
Was this vid made in your school lunch hour 🙂
7 times however … 😀
The last thing i want when its 3° and pissing it down is SLICK TYRES
Fuck Me he is good…Great Job buddy👍🏾
Very well apoken lad. Thanks for the helpful info!
great, my bicycle knowledge ego has to now admit that it has learned something new today. thanks
I thought that wider tires actually work better with modern ‘U’ shape wheels to create a much more aerodynamic solution?
I typed "can the size of the tire effect the speed?" and this is the video that I came up with, and it does not make me happy because I didn’t get my question answered. Can someone please answer my question? What would happen if we take the gears of a bicycle that has standard size of the weals and install it to the smallest bicycle tire in the world, would it go faster with the same gears installed on the smallest bicycle tires in the world, or would it go faster when installed on the biggest bicycle gear in the world?
what a strange video
28mm Gatorskins clinchers for training. 25mm Gatorskins tubulars 2500 miles on them without a flat! Vittoria Pave III for Road racing, Vittoria Courses CX III for Crits! Knock on wood have not flatted in a 11/2 yrs.
Any way of knowing before purchase if a tire will be very difficult or easy to mount on your rims?
But nobody rides 32c… "All around me are familiar faces, from worn out places…"
for grip u use softer rubber.. isnt that obvious? And softer rubber wears out way quicker than harder ones… though softerones has alot of grip.
Check out continental Top Contact Reflex Road 28mm.
JOE 90 knows a lot about bike tyres, hehehehe!
Continental 4 Seasons – DONE
is there a way i can buy pre assembled tires that i can just put on to my frame? Im on a budget and little experience with assembling a bike tube or rim etc.
Hmm…Just a question, I have a vintage road bike. I’ve semi retired it, and only take it out a few time’s a year (dedicated weekend rides and blue skies only). Anyways, the tires on it are blue colored Continental Ultra Sport 700x23C and I’ve just realized they are now 11 years old. They look like they are in great condition – no cracks anywhere on them or any serious flaws like cuts or bubbles. In fact, even the nubs are still on them. If anything, the tread part does have a weird shine as if some applied shine to them (trust me, I haven’t). I’m thinking about old car’s, and now I’m wondering if it might be a good idea to replace them – whats your thoughts on good condition, barely worn old road bike tires?
Clinchers have less rolling resistance than tubulars
Schwable One Evolution on my B’Twin Ultra AF. Will switch to Durano or Gatorskin if I travel abroad
