  • Hahaaa i agonised over tyre choice and decided to go all black for this one. I have a pair of Veloflex master I was thinking about, but you’re not supposed to use them on carbon rims apparently...

  • Never heard that before and was curious so i had a look around and apparently its because some carbon rims can be rough on the inside of the bead hook which can cause damage/rough up or potentially fray the fibres on the tyre bead due to the spun fiber construction. So if your rims are smooth already or can be with a little careful wet and dry or even line the inner bead of the rim with a little tape you should be fine i reckon. A decent wheel builder would be able to tell you for sure

  • Yes I did the same research and I think it would probably be fine, but decided to go for GP4K for now. Will try the veloflex one day!

  • Winning either way then.

  • Lovely peugeot
