Interested in some 25s. Do they measure close to that when inflated? Also can you provide a photo of actual tire & tread?

Thanks

2 -25's , and 2-27's in tan sidewalls
PM me please for transaction details.

The open clinchers are pretty good save the darkening sidewalls. Like the black is degassing. I suspect the tubulars will be different.

I'm interested in a pair of the 25s, but would need to know the PSI range marked on the sidewall. Thank you!

This image is from Challenge that shows the tread. If that doesn't work, I can get a pic tomorrow. I don't have a 25 mounted and don't have the actual measurement when inflated.

They're outstanding tires. I've had no punctures in 2000 miles, they wear really well and no defects. Mine didn't even need pre-stretching but I did it anyway out of habit. Might get some from you in a few weeks if you still have them.

Just got mine in the mail today; look just fine. I'll stretch them and install them once my current tubs wear out.

What's left (just in case I decide I want more)?

@Shrevvy I'm also interested in a pair of 27mm tubulars with tan sidewalls if you have any left. Or 25mm in tan if the 27mm ones are gone. PM sent (though I forgot to mention the tan sidewalls in my PM). Thanks.
