    Veloflex's new tubs...25mm, 350tpi...they do look tasty.

    Drop bars not bombs.

    Do not show this.
    Now he wants a 1x bike with oval chainrings too.
    (I must admit the ovals are really nice when climbing).

    I love fancy tires....

    Yep, I am in on those. Looks nice. I have to go thru about 10 other veloflex before though.

    When I saw the title, I thought he was already tired of the GT3T and was moving on to one of these..........

    I was disappointed to see it's only tires...........

    These new tubs may be constructed with casings woven from Alpaca hair, and bacon strips peeled from Hinault's shorts for tread, but they only are available in 25mm. I'm spoiled by Vlaanderens.

    I’m still sitting on a multi-year supply of the 22/23 size Veloflexes as well.

    This new one looks nice. I see no point in a larger one unless riding Paris-Roubaix and each year the organizers seem to lose my invitation. So I don’t really need them.

    I think I am down to 2 or 3 23mm, no more 22mm. I also mostly ride on 25 these days even though I think my F8 has a 25 upfront and a 23 in the back :)
