    I have a set of Clement X'PLOR USH for when I'm on gravel or light trail use. I need a set of road tires for when.... well... I'm on the road. Lol.

    The truth is after spending a crap ton of money...
  2. Ok, here it is so even you can understand it. I'm...

    Ok, here it is so even you can understand it. I'm looking for a 28mm "spec'd" tire because everything that comes in larger sizes are typically hybrid tires. Which means (for the uninformed) that they...
  3. Thanks for understanding. I'm pretty sure if...

    Thanks for understanding.

    I'm pretty sure if the tire doesn't say "Schwalbe" on the side mounting a 28mm tire on my rim won't be a problem. Just to see I mounted a 25mm Hutchinson Equinox on the...
  4. Yeah, thats it! I'm just using you guys as my...

    Yeah, thats it! I'm just using you guys as my personal Google. Seriously? I guess you have never asked a question on the forum then? I'm sorry all knowing one, I shall never ask for other's...
  5. will the 28mm offering also be a Pro Race model?...

    will the 28mm offering also be a Pro Race model? If so we may have a winner! :-)
  6. Ok, forget sizing for a moment. What is so hard...

    Ok, forget sizing for a moment. What is so hard to understand about "slick"? I'm not trying to be a d*ck but why is it everyone has to chime in without an actual answer to the proposed question. I...
  7. I consider a slick to have no visible tread.

    I consider a slick to have no visible tread.
  8. Again.... way too heavy and not a slick. I'm...

    Again.... way too heavy and not a slick. I'm looking for something similar to the Schwalbe Ultremo. Those weigh 205g in size 28mm.
  9. They are not slicks and they are way to heavy at...

    They are not slicks and they are way to heavy at 450g. Also, I do not want reflective. I've looking for a light weight road tire, not a hybrid tire. But thanks for posting.
  10. Anyone have any input?

    Anyone have any input?

    Crank Brothers Iodine 2 wheelset. They're on my Litespeed disc bike and I need some road tires for it.
  12. What are the widest tires in their respective sizes?

    Some of you may have seen the thread I started outlining the problems I had with a set of Schwalbe Ultremos in size 28mm. It's here in case you missed it:

  13. So here's something that's interesting.... I...

    So here's something that's interesting....

    I decided to take a look at the beads on the two tires to see if there was anything that stood out as to why the Hutchinson (25mm) would stay seated on...
  14. That's a very valid opinion. However, I was very...

    That's a very valid opinion. However, I was very clear the internal diameter was 23mm when I spoke with Schwalbe. The thought that a 37mm on a 23mm rim being the minimun is absolutely ridiculous.
    ...
  15. So the Hutchinson tire has been installed on the...

    So the Hutchinson tire has been installed on the wheel at 100 psi (max recommended for this tire) for a few hours and so far no issues. The Schwalbe didn't last 2 minutes at 90 psi. I'm going to go...
  16. Thanks Doug. I did see that link you posted when...

    Thanks Doug. I did see that link you posted when I was doing research on these wheels. The Clement tires I had mounted on these wheels before I decided to use the Schwalbes also have a kevlar bead...
  17. Well maybe nacho may have considered adding a...

    Well maybe nacho may have considered adding a "LOL" or an emoticon after his comment. I don't know him and when someone posts something of this nature sarcasm doesn't translate well in text. And I...
  18. Lol! Great response. But Schwalbe didn't say the...

    Lol! Great response. But Schwalbe didn't say the tires were to large, they said they were too small for the rim diameter. They told me the minimun size tire that should be used on a 23mm rim was 37mm.
  19. The wheels are Crank Brothers Iodine 2. Here is a...

    The wheels are Crank Brothers Iodine 2. Here is a pic but there is no nipple at the rim.

    I see there are trolls here in this section of the forum too. Seriously, why bother to post something like this? You have no clue about my experience nor any indication that they were mounted...
  21. Thanks but I've mounted hundreds of tires and I...

    Thanks but I've mounted hundreds of tires and I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing. I'm sure that is not the problem.
  22. I did send the photo to Schwalbe. They are...

    I did send the photo to Schwalbe. They are replacing the tires for me. There is no rim tape. The rims are designed to be tubeless.
  23. The beads are Kevlar and the rims are not...

    The beads are Kevlar and the rims are not vintage. They are really 23mm inside diameter. They are also designed to run tubeless if one were so inclined. That is actually why I first called Schwalbe....
  24. Now I'm really confused..... 28mm tire on 23mm rim..... Not compatible???

    I recently purchased a set of Schwalbe Ultremos in 28mm to use with my 23mm (inside diameter) rims. I installed the front tire (by hand/no tools) and was mounting the rear tire when the bead on the...

    My local shop told me the 28's should work on my 23mm rims. Schwalbe has a different opinion so maybe they know something about their tires that we don't. Perhaps the bead differs from other tires. I...
