I can squeeze two 25mm Gatorskins in my Jandd but then I need a place for sealant and a couple tools. So on a ride where I want two spares, I use my Acorn Medium which is a bottomless pit.

The rims are shallow box rims, but, Jiminy Crickets (avoiding BF censors here - you know how I really want to express myself) the valve stems are the shortest I've ever encountered. I can pump the tires with my Zefal HP (locking chuck) but not with the Silca chuck on my Park floor pump (relies on the full engagement possible with a longer stem). I know I should probably just spring for a new locking chuck (Hirame?) but the current chuck also rather clumsily does schrader when I need it.

Unless I've gone completely blind, I believe these tires have removable valve cores. What are the shortest valve stem extenders I can get?

These are the shortest that I've come across:

Two of these would probably fit. Tufo Elite Jet- a great spare tire.

Ah! a proper fold!

Is that tread good in the wet? I did my first open (real/non-club) race in pouring rain on orange thread Vittoria cottons. Interesting! Good thing was it was a long race, no corners and quite literally dampened by the weather.

When I get a bunch of nice tires in the mail, I feel compelled to mount (unglued) at least one set for a ‘gander’ and a smile. 27mm

Didn’t mount the pair of clincher Conti5000s, which I hope I like as much as the Vittoria Corsa G+ somethingorother.

I would like to know how you got two tubulars in that bag. I can barely get one in and often do not close it.

I just bought 2 great bags that @jamesdak recommended on the Vintage Carbon thread. Holds 2 tubs plus tools. Appears to be the angle of the dangle. I used it this weekend, plenty of room.

Do you make a neat fold of your tires? I'd think two neatly folded tires secured with a toestrap around both wouldn't be too hard to get in and zip up. (There was a thread not too long ago on neatly folded tires. I know DiabloScott posted a photo of his.)

Yes I can fold them neatly ala DiabloScott and two will not fit in the JandD bag. Other methods also. A variable in all this may be the tire itself.

You are referring to tubulars? I have tried with 23mm Contis.

No. I think not.

You're killing me. You tease with good info and then don't share a link.

This is the totally tubular thread and there are two 22mm Sprinter Gatorskins in this Tufo Branded Jandd bag. My 25s are mounted.
Which Continental comes in a 23?

Gatorskins are pretty bulky. Competitions take up less room but then on a normal road ride I wouldn’t carry two tires anyway. But if I want two spares —think Eroica or BWR—I’ll use a bigger saddle bag.

Old Sprinter 250s. And I stand corrected.

Me too--- but I might try to copy it in leather and size it to fit my average seat post reveal. Great idea and the bottle holder could double as a space to carry additional items when extra fluids are not needed.

What's this tubular glue/tape?
 
Shifting gears a bit, but still on the tubular tire topic... I purchased a pair of used Dugast cyclocross tubulars at the last Brazen Dropouts swap meet. One tire had some issues with the sewing of the casing (tearing). I got around to fixing that the other day and am now thinking about mounting them on some bike (most likely whatever they will fit). Unfortunately, they have a new-to-me glue reside of some sort. It kind of looks like snot from a bad cold and has the consistency of that adhesive used to affix gift cards at the checkout counter to the cardboard backing - very rubbery, doesn't stick to your fingers. What is it? Is it tubular tape residue or some other type of tubular (or other) glue? Should I attempt to remove all/most of it before gluing the tire to the rim with Vittoria Mastik One? Is it possible something Dugast applied to their tires (I suspect not)?

Challenge Elite tires are $29 again at ProBilkeKit. I get 10% off. I don't know if you do. Of course exclusions apply, and I didn't check.

Wildwood 11-21-20 06:45 PM

I rode the Spesh Turbo 24mm turbos today. They are just beginning to wear thru the outer rubber in a couple of spots on the rear. But today's ride was on generally smooth pavement, and at 105/115psi they absolutely disappear beneath my almost 190 pounds.

Punlic Service Announcement - checking Spesh for a sale price to replace, I found their tubular cyclocross seem to be on sale. Timely?

Boy, I had one of those as a spare for the longest time... no promises but I'll have a look in my reserve drawers.

Edit - oops, it was a Michelin.

OK. I get it now. You found a front 650c tire and wheel and your LOOKING FOR a 700c tire for the rear that matches in every way but diameter.

Sorry to get your hopes up- I thought you were looking for 650c, and was commenting on DiabloScott's post.

There's the Tufo Elite Jet shown above- somewhat similar size & color...
