You recommend 48mm valves, but Conti doesn't make tubes with that length valve. Do you recommend a tube with 48mm valves? Thanks.

Just joined the forum and plan to order a set of 60-90 cc's when I can sell a couple-few old wheel sets.
Did have a question about latex tubes. Your rationale for using them on race day makes sense. Do you keep them on all the time, or switch to butyl for training and general use?

Ordered my wheels on the Black Friday sale, excited to see them!
I got a 60/90 set of carbon clinchers.

Had a question about the valve extenders. With a 60/90 set, what is the best solution for an emergency spare tube? Carry an extra tube set up for the 90 with an extender already installed, and it would just stick out if it was used on the front? I'm imagining myself on the roadside during a half ironman, clock ticking away, sweating in the July Indiana heat and humidity, fiddling around with a valve extender and sweaty fingers....

Saw in a blog post from March 2016 that you had compared aero effect of 23 vs 25mm ContiGP4K2, but hadn't gotten around to posting the info yet.

Did you post this later and I just didn't find it?

Very curious to know, since 25mm GP4K2 is the tire I intend to run. My thought is that even if there is a slight aero penalty, I think I will net benefit from being able to stay in my aero bars through fast corners, over rough stuff, etc. The only thing that would make me change my mind would be if the aero penalty is very significant.
