Bike24.com has these fat, fat Schwalbe G-One HT Speed Evolution tubulars with a "basketball" tread in 30mm width for a great price:

I bought 4 and immediately had to try them on my Velocity Major Tom rims and they are a match made in heaven. Unfortunately for me my wheels are 130mm rear hub, rim brake and all of my road bikes seem to run out of clearance with tire widths much wider (or taller) than 27mm.

Rant:

Vittoria replaceable valve stems suck!

I'm down to I think the last one of these, a file tread tire used for all around riding on the CX bike. It developed a slow leak, and I thought about adding some goop, but the valve core is not removable.

The leak got worse so I pulled the tire and found no puncture, just the stupid stem having come loose. This is not the first or even the third time I have seen this with various tires.

At least Vittoria finally abandoned the misguided idea, so possibly you have been blissfully unaware- if so, count yourself lucky.

woodcraft Which model of Vittoria tire are you referring to? Do you mean valve core or the entire stem? Rallys used to have nonremovable valve cores, but recent production has removable cores.

In this case it is "Cross EVO XN" but it was on various tires.

The silver & black are valve stem extensions, & the red are the hated stems, in different lengths.
