panaracer pasela width
Is there anybody out there who knows how to get a panaracer pasela in the correct width? My KHS milano tandem came with non-tourguard paselas in 700x28. But the actual width by caliper was 24.2mm, and indeed the ride was way too harsh for cracked asphalt on minnesota roads. I read somewhere that paselas size small, so I ordered a set of pasela tourguards in 700x35, hoping that the tires would measure about 32mm. Well, when those came in, they measured 35.1 mm, which doesn't leave enough clearance for my fenders.
I spoke to a great tech. support guy at nashbar.com. He knew all about the panaracer sizing issues, and explained to me that while old paselas are mislabled, and newer paselas are correctly labled, their shipments from the panaracer factory contain mixed old and new stock, and there's no way for them at nashbar to sort them out.
How can I get paselas that measure 32mm wide?
