Recovering 90's MTB addict I've been riding, racing and building bikes forever. I like fat aluminium, skinny steel and lairy paint jobs. I've also recently come out of the closet as a Triathlete

    Thanks I'll probably go for the corsa controls or the fusion 5 all season. It'll come down to availability and price. I can't find the tubeless vredsteins anywhere. I've borrowed some 28's to check clearance so I'll go as fat as I can fit. My rims are 21mm internal 30 mm external so will probably be happier with a wider tyre mounted if i can squeeze them in.

    Cheers I'm pretty sure I've seen pairs on sale so anything if i can get anything decent for £80-£100 I'm happy

    I know it as well but its about a 90 minute detour for me so don't know if i can get there in daylight hours now. Same for you i suppose. Need someone from the west to pick it up. Another clue there

    I've got some shwalbe ones and rate them but didn't want to trash them as a winter tyre i thought they were a dry racey tyre? Tubeless because i get a lot out fine shingle on my coastal commute an in the wet i seems to puncture every couple of weeks which usually seal up on their own pretty quickly and sometimes just need a 10-20 psi top up and I'm off again.

    I always used to use cosa clinchers and tubs in summer and open paves in winter and loved them. I didn't think there was a tubeless pave replacement since they stopped doing the black and green clinchers. So a tubeless equivalent of that is what I'm after really. Google says the corsa g+ is the replacement but I've no experience with vittorias since they released the graphine like 5 years ago. I'm right out of touch with the current crop

    Anyone got an old 28mm road tyre laying around to have or just borrow to check out clearances on my winter road bike?

    I've got a Genesis zero disc. Spec says 28mm but I'm running crud racers so 28's may not fit under the guard up front but no problem out back. My current conti 25's measure 27mm on my wideish rims
