New tubs

Tubs!
Need some new tubular tyres for a really nice set of xentis HM Carbon wheels.

Got two brand new gators but these probably deserve better…!?

23-24 mm so I can use them on any of my bikes.

Any recommendations, for sale or advice greatly received.

Vittoria Corsa G+ at £95 a pair on Wiggle at the minute.
Tan wall, 23mm for the win

Not sure they could do that with tyres.

They were very very poorly packaged, BOGOF!! Ish

What tape are people using these days? I can’t be faffed with glue and I think I’ll treat my wheels to new tubs this Spring. Got tubs need tape…ta

VELOX JANTEX.

Is there any other tape?

Cheers for the heads up!!!
Been looking at the normal ones for £100/pair, but these seem a bit more palatable at £60.

They seem very narrow for 23 mm…!?

Quite a lot of rubber on the tread, side walls a little thin …?!

Nice finish

Too wide for my wheels I’m afraid.

Too wide for my wheels I’m afraid.

Narrow rim…!?

I have a few sets of tubs…

28”s are going on one of them… none are particularly wide rims …?

Wide tyres on narrow rims is an aero sin.

I was waiting for that …
Comfort and grip are more important to me at this stage…

Grippiest tubs…!?

Veloflex carbons been told by two different people…!?
