I spent over an hour trying to mount a Tufo tubular clincher to my Rolf Elan front wheel. The first 3 times I managed to get the tube over one rim and applied the required 15psi the tire popped off the rim. I quit with the the bead seated on all but 6" on either side of the presta valve.
Has anyone tried / succeeded in using these tires? The construction looks good and 330 TPI should ride nice. They are 700x21 and run 115psi - 220psi. I'm moving the Conti GP 4000 over to the Nimble Spider wheelset on my Colnago. I weighed the rim/tube/tire and it's approx 280g - the same as the Tufo setup.
The instructions say it should install in a minute or less!
