I was a bit surprised to hear from @challengetires that the reason the Paris Roubaix tires disintegrated is that they aren't  compatible my @hedcycling Ardennes + rims. So yeah, live and learn I guess. Anybody wanna buy a single Paris Roubaix tire?

  • cavemanwebbieI have had 3 Griffio XS tires go through warranty. QBP just asked for pictures of the delamanation and took care of me
  • wtfkits@maxcolumbus I think the issue here is your rim width is within product spec. Mine are not according to challenge and the published reference guide.
  • wtfkits@stickboybike a 27
  • wtfkits@cavemanewebbie eh, moving in but good to let people know if the product is not in spec with what you got - explore other options.
  • wtfkitsSeriously though - anybody want to buy a single Paris roubaix tire?
  • cavemanwebbie@wtfkits very true! These tires are famous for coming apart...which is a shame because when they don't they are great.
  • jaynalbachuh oh...that is not a good thing. i'm riding GrandBois/Compass tires on my + rims, so far so good..and very comfortable!
  • wtfkits@jaynalbach just check out the compatible chart.

  • jakeszyWhat width tire is it? 27mm?
  • matthewburtonillustration@cavemanewebbie my griffo xs just delaminated I have had no info from my emails to challenge. Who did you contact?
  • wtfkits27
  • wtfkits@donkeylabel you and your fancypants trouser deluxe FMB!!!
  • cavemanwebbie@matthewburtonillustration contact your LBS or whoever you purchased it from. My LBS got mine through QBP. All they required me to do was take a picture, how many miles I had on it and what type of surfaces.
  • matthewburtonillustration@cavemanewebbie gravel, tarmac off road bit of everything. I'll have to look up the uk distributer and pester them
  • taefotoI thought the PR's are 30mm. I've got them on 25mm wide (external) rims and they've been great - I wonder if it's the internal width that's the problem.
  • blueprint_bikes_7th_and_parkThe same thing has happened to me on 19mm rims. Challenge is trippin. It's a shame, because I like(d) their tires
  • donkeylabelPinky extended @wtfkits pinky extended
