Thanks very much for the explanations, I really understood all and help a lot.
I decided not to replace the fork. Not only that it is expensive, but I think the old one is not yet critically...

I use an older version of this, with aluminum fork, on a smart trainer and a few times as a replacement of main bike for a few real rides. A durable bike, all good for the price, except for...

Just trying to assess the risks and prevention, based on others' experiences, if I replace the tire well before reaching worn indicators or other visible signs. A road bike tire often holds more than...

So, it looks it can occur primarily due to equipment mismatch or overheating from rim brakes. It sounds somehow encouraging, since both reasons can be avoided.
But what about tubes? Can they...

Just to clarify some questions:

The tubeless in discussion is 23 mm (measures 24 inflated), rated at 87 – 130 psi and I rode it at around 85 (+/-). I can’t go 28-32 mm, as the frame has no...

I apologize if I created discomfort, it was not my intention. Just discard the word “myth” and read it as a true story.
My conclusion (last sentence) also highlights the good experience heard from...

80-85 PSI. 95 was short time for seating the tire.

Myths of the road tubeless (or Go back to clinchers)

Issue: a small hole (less than 0.5 mm) on the rolling area of a road tubeless tire.
The result of 5-6 hours of repairing work: The hole is still there, the tire is down the floor and around 50 g...

Yes, but I dropped the idea. It is a 0.5mm cut in a 23 mm tire. I'm afraid that enlarging that cut up to 4-5 mm (the thickness of the tire plugs tool) would damage the structure of the tire.

That is very logical, but I always thought that it is only in theory.
I think that in real life, a 80 kg guy on a bike with 23 mm clinchers at 8 bar should take such a hard hit for getting a pinch,...

Yes, indeed, I red a lot about this.
But with 2 flats in 35000 km on clinchers, I did not take that into account. It was more about to see a marginal improvement in performance. Not that I need that...

Tubeless... Is that all?

I switched to Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ 2.0 - tubeless tires on carbon road bike, after years of riding with Continental GP 4000/5000 clinchers. All 23 mm wide, on the same wheels.
After around 15...

At 10 deg Celsius with the fan on the 3rd step (strongest) I still need a towel to wipe away the sweat at every 2-5 minutes. At 15 deg Celsius and the same fan at the maximum speed, I can't avoid a...

I would be very careful with that. For example, I think that few people can ride a road bike with a "nose up" position of the saddle. In fact, if the bike also has a big "saddle to handlebar drop",...

For sure it was carefully tightened at recommended 5 Nm (sometimes very little above) more than 10 times, with a torque key, but it got loose every time. By the way, I was probably funny above, using...

Thanks all for advises.
I thought I could do it for 500-600 EUR (no installing costs, as I can do the job). But it seems there is no way to go below 1000 EUR (or 1200), no matter the savings in...

I've "been" there. However, after 1-2 rides you might come back to the old performance. And don't be surprised if, moving back the saddle after a longer time, you'll have again a short time and small...
