I've bought the Hutchinson Atom Galactiks on Ugo's say so ;-)

So I'll know who to blame if a 23mm tyre doesn't sit well on a 24mm rim :-o

I want feedback ASAP as they are on my to do list...

Mind you, I should get a pair of IRC to test for my blog... I think they cost over 100 quid each... :shock:

Well, be patient if I'm your only hope, I haven't built the wheels yet..!

my One 25's have arrived from Hibike.
32euro each.

Also, just measured my 28's on Ultegra wheels and they measure at 30mm.
No wonder i have been struggling to get them past the 6800 caliper when inflated

This. I got all excited for a moment, thinking I was ahead of the stock notification from Ribble.

I'm reasonably sure I didn't, but that's a possibility.

The non-tubeless ones are the price you suggested, the tubeless ones are listed as dearer (and out of stockier...) ;-)

I wonder if these would work tubeless?

If you can run them under 60-70 PSI, you have a chance to convert a tyre by using latex emulsion, but if you need higher pressure you do want a tubeless tyre to avoid the hospital

Well, on 2WayFit Fulcrum Racing 3s, Schwalbe Ones went on and up fine with no issues

Struggling to see what all they fuss is about really. Still, have nt ridden them yet...

Try fitting them onto a Pacenti SL23, then try saying the same thing! :evil:

I suppose I should add that I have a little amount of experience having done it on the MTB

I should add that this is way easier when using proper kit with new tyres (ie ones that have nt already been cut somewhere). I see a lot of criticisms of tubeless being hard to set up, but if you read further you find out that they ve used non-tubeless tyres, bodged the rim strip with a BMX inner tube and made their own sealant from butter and olive oil.

I need to sort out what tyre pressure to use now though - going like for like was a mistake!

As a rule of thumb I would go for 1 Bar less, given same real size. I am 72 Kg and use Schwalbe ONE (real 27 mm) at 75 PSI

Speaking from personal eperience, fitting tubeless MTB tyres is a doddle compared to to certain combinations of road tubeless tyres and rims. SL23 rims are notorious for being a bugger.

I'm very much looking forward to this battle (NOT!) :cry:
