Did you get your tires in yet? I bought a pair of these and one was really out of round and the other was so far out of true it rubbed the frame. Pretty disappointed in them. I've reached out to Pirelli to see if they will Replace them.

Are you sure the tires are fully seated on the rims? I had a Panaracer Pasela tire I was convinced was defective but after searching online I learned tires sometimes donít seat properly. In my situation the tire looked wobbly on the rim. I deflated the tire then re-inflated it to 115 psi or so and heard small ďpopsĒ as the tire finally seated properly on the rim.

This is after about 120 miles. The tires were a little wonky when I first got them. Had the LBS true the wheels up and my mech told me to put some miles on them and the weight over time should even them out. So this is after 120 miles on them. It's gotten worse with the mileage to the point that I can't ride them now.

In short yes, they were seated. Swapped rims, flipped em in the other direction, swapped tubes. There is something wrong with these tires. I'm guessing some of the strands in the casing are not holding up the way they should.

Iím vacationing on the Big Island in Hawaii and walked into a bike shop in Waikoloa. I looked at the clearance rack and found this in my size.

Iíll wear this riding my vintage Colnago. Breaking Away!

The bike shop had the matching bib shorts on clearance as well but it was 1-2 sizes too large for me. 😫

No, they just shipped yesterday and the FedEx site has not updated yet to give me a delivery date. I will let you know when they get here

Please post up a review once you get familiar, if you'd be so kind. Been happy with Michelin for a while, but have an itch to try these :)

Will do, I am waiting on them to clear customs from Italy.

Russ Roth 06-22-21 09:51 PM

Picked up a new tool bag. I bring the tools with me when I go to the track to do any adjustments the Star Track kids need, wasn't too bad at Kissena, just walk the tool box to the benches. At TTown I had to carry my bike, my daughter's and the tool box up the stairs and back down to get over the track, and the tool box was awkward. Figured a backpack tool bag would make it easier. Bag is heavy but stays upright even loaded up. Not a perfect design but neither was the box, need to make an insert that holds certain tools better. Have a new 8/14 crank bolt wrench on the way to add to the weight.

So I got my tires, and as an note, I got my tires from Italy faster and cheaper than I can gets from from California :wtf:. Anyway, I am currently running tubeless at the moment, so I decided to use my wife's bike as a fit tester to see how they would mount on the Aeolus Pro37's wheels. Could have not been easier, did not struggle a bit, I could probably pulls these off without a tire tool, it was awesome. Anyway, the tires look good and do not have the wonkiness yours have.

Now the negative, my wife saw the one tire on the wheel from her bike....."ooh, I like that",.... :notamused:, she now has a set of Pirelli's. I took the bike for a quick ride between the rain, and they felt really good and felt so much smoother than the Bontrager r2 32's she had on there before. Now I am really questioning if I want to stay tubeless or go back to tube. I like the look of the classics, but now that I know how smooth they installed, I might just stay tubeless.

I got mine from Lord Gun as well. Quick shipping and cheap :). Glad they worked out. They look great. Now go order another pair !

https://i8.amplience.net/i/rapha/CLJ...t=1:1%201500w,

Same jersey I already have, had to size up...disgusted with myself. Goal is to size down before cooler weather comes and I break out my long sleeve version, I don't want to shell out another $175 for a bigger long sleeve version just cuz I suckled too many Cokes.

That said, love the cut and quality, but really wish they made a black one without the pink like they do for the long sleeve version. Doesn't match my red and white bike, none of their Classic jersey color options do but this is the closest I guess.

So, after I ended up putting the p Race Classics on my wife's bike, I ordered 2 more sets of the Pirelli's. 1 was the p Zero Race TLR in 28 for my Domane, and p Zero Race in 28 for my Emonda as I do not have TLR wheels on that bike. I have a few rides on the non TLR's and they are really sweet. They roll really nice, are very grippy in the wet, which I am glad to know as it has been raining here for what seems like 3 weeks solid and I am tired of riding the trainer. They mounted really easy on the non TLR wheelset, Aeolus 5's. I have less than 50 miles on them, but so far, I really like them over the Bontrager R3 in 25mm, I have been riding.

I only got the TLR's mounted today, and they were a little more difficult, but I was able to get them on without using any assistance, just my hands. The TLR's bead snapped into place on my Aeolus Pro 3V's just using a hand pump, it could not have been easier. It took me less than 20 mins to get both TLR's tires mounted and Orange Seal inserted and then I took it for a spin around the neighborhood for 20 mins while it was not raining allowing the sealant to do it's thing. Like the non-TLR's, they roll very nice. I have been riding Bontrager R3 in 32 on my Domane, which to my surprise, was a really nice riding tire, but I wanted to try out a 28. I could immediately feel the difference in the how they rolled. I plan to give them a long ride this weekend; probably in the flipping rain .....:notamused:, again. I know people out west are needing rain, I so wish I could send them some of this. We are going to get rain on and off around the clock for the next 10 day. My blueberry bushes are dying due to too much rain.

Anyway, that is my initial impression. I would say, if you are going non-TLR, without hesitation, buy them, I can't speak to the TLR yet as far as recommending them, but I can't imagine they would been so different from the non-TLR versions ride wise.



Anyway, there you go, my

Took the TLR's out for 65 today. I could tell I had too much air in the tires...they were a little hard compared to what I was riding before, Bontrager R3's 32mm running at 60 psi. I had the Pirelli's at 80, where I thought I had them at 70-75. Even with that, absolutely loved them, they just rolled so smooth and easy. I am glad, I picked some up. Luckily, so rain, but the tires are very grippy.

jaxgtr 07-03-21 07:19 PM

Needed a new small torque wrench (2 to 20 NM) as it seems I loaned mine out, or someone stole it, just not sure. I picked up a torque wrench that is re-badged by about 15 different companies including Park Tools, on Amazon for $50. Park variant is $110.

I was blasted by someone for still using a magnet and sensor computer. So I just got a gps unit, I didnít need a Garmin with routes and maps so I went with a XOSS G+.

Thanks for punching this up :beer: Hopefully you've gotten a break from the rain by now. Will definitely pick up a set next time I'm due, curious to see how they do with accumulating small cuts.

Would like to report no rain, but we have a hurricane hitting tomorrow, so....:notamused:

When it rains, it... :innocent:

Joking aside, stay safe down there!

Stopped in a bike shop in a remote town in Alaska. They had Trek Madone in my size. A NOS 2014 Madone 3.1 Compact. Rim brakes. Older 105 set up (10 speed). Older CF generation frame. Wheels are not tubeless ready. But it is brand new even though 7 years old. So I bought it. It is in the process of getting pedals installed.
