    Default 32c Slick Tubular Options?

    Is there such a tire? I’d really prefer not to have to “shave” a CX grass tire to obtain such a result.

    For the road I presume? If so, I've never seen one wider than 30mm but perhaps someone like FMB or Dugast makes such a beast.

    I can confirm FMB can produce 32/33mm road tubular as I had done such a request a few years ago and they said it wasn't an issue.

    I never saw a Challenge tire to stay true to it's claimed size. I am sure Strada Biancas measure at least 32c, despite their "declared" narrower size. They are definitely bigger by eye than my Paris-Roubaix, which are over 30c measured. Very nice tires in my opinion, and quite long lasting.

    My experience with Challenge has been mixed to say the least. I’ve had many instances where the tread comes unglued far before the tire is worn out, and that has happened on several tires I have owned from them. But I agree, otherwise they make a great tire.

    Same goes for the FMB. All of them I have had (several sets) became unglued (tread separation, and basetape too) long before wearing out and my attempts to reglue all failed. YMMV.

    Mine has been on the negative side of mixed for lots of reasons. The Challenge web site's siren song is that they have not only 33 but also a 36 in the Strada Bianca PRO (their capitalization) tire. Hmmm..... thinking.... I'm a road tubular guy, but with a new allroad incoming I'm thinking of a second set of dirt/mixed/gravel wheels to complement the Bora One 35 disc tubulars enroute to me for my pavement time. I have never ridden tubeless, but wonder at what point they are a better choice than a really big tubular. (Interesting how the old threads that come up on search all talk about 27s as 'fat'.... how our perceptions of 'big' change). FWIW, my new frame is designed to clear a 38, but a 36mm tubular.... hmmmm.

    I actually just researched this question myself prior to finding this thread, and came to the schwalbe conclusion. Now the question is whether to risk ordering from probikekit or chainreaction for cheap or a trustworthy retailer for more dollars..
