Road Riding on 700 X 27C

FMB Boyaux 700 X 27C Paris Roubaix Pro
on Lightweight Standard, Moots Vamoots RSL

Dang, I’m really enjoying the ride! See my review of the FMB Paris Roubaix Pro.

If you ride tubulars and your fork and brakes will clear 27C, I heartily recommend trying the PRP in 27C size, it might pan out as a grin-producing experience. There is also a 25C version which I have not yet tried, as well as the non-Pro version (Pro version has sidewall protection and is a bit heavier).

I’ve now tried the FMB Paris Roubaix Pro at 82, 90 and 100 PSI. At 100 PSI, this is one fast-rolling tire, yet still compliant and still with tons of grip. Using 100 PSI is probably better (for my 175 pounds) for fast descents, because the tire deforms a little less under high speed cornering.

Also, the PRP is very quiet, definitely lower noise than my usual Veloflex Record.

I like the Paris Roubaix Pro enough that I think I will be ordering a 700 X 25C size that will fit on the rear (25C will clear the seat tube, 27C too tight), at least once I put some more wear on the Schwalbe Ultremo HT currently mounted on that rear wheel.
