Good evening folks.
I'm running some Vittoria Crono EVO CS 20mm tires on Mavic GEL280 rims with Continental cement.
One coat of glue on the new tire and 2 coats on the rim 24 hours apart and then the mounting coat on the rim.
Its the same way I've done Conti Sprinters with out problems for years.
Let the tires dry for 24.
When I ride they make a rice krispie crackling. I pulled the tires off and put one more coat on the tire and another mounting coat on the rim and they still make noise.
Rim to wide for a 20mm tire? Should I find a wider light weight tire?
Its for my dedicated hill climber.
