I agree with gunwalls but man it would also be killer with some carbons or some ceramic wheels.


I’d vote carbon over ceramic IMO. I think the white lettering from the Shamal’s mesh well with the frame color.

While I agree that Boras would look hella dope, as would Milles, I can't see either providing even a marginally better riding experience for the terrain I'm exploring on this rig. IMO, Shamal C17s look proper on here, roll super fast, brake spectacularly, are plenty light, and will probably never need to be touched with a wrench. The only thing I may be missing out on is a minor uptick in aero efficiency with the Boras - but most of my riding is solo and all of it is just for fun, so what's the point? I enjoy motoring along at 20-22mph on the flats as is - would I really enjoy it that much more if I were going 22.2mph instead? And would that enjoyment be worth the anxiety of maintaining and babying carbon hoops? Not for me, not right now.

That isn't meant to be argumentative or defensive, just explaining my rationale and why I'm happy/satisfied with the wheel choice as-is.

I begrudge no-one their choice in wheels, and if you've got the will to play with carbon hoops, go for it - just not my jam at the moment.

Lols. I'm trying to get those out the door, not into the dropouts!

In favor of the Shamals.

Vote for Shamals with tan sidewall Vittorias. Or even Specialized Turbo Cotton's. I've been running them on my Peg and they are great.

Got the 28c Gravel Kings on there...clearance look adequate? And what do we think of the brownwalls?

They look nice and there is plenty of clearance. Let us know how you like them. I had some 28s a couple years ago for winter training and I hated them. Felt super slow. I did just get some 32s to throw on my Spooky however, but that's a different kind of bike

Digging them! What do they measure out to be?

Plenty of clearance, but personally I don’t like gumwall/brownwalls.

I like the gks on there look good. They are good tires for the price but cant compare to a corsa or even a veloflex

I was wondering about that - thought folks had given them pretty high marks, but maybe it’s a question of “compared to what”....

I won’t be riding them outside for a week it looks like

So I've got her up in the living room on the trainer - spreading out where I store my bikes so they aren't all in one place - and I ask my wife, who's an artist and big on color, "so hun, whaddya think of the brown-walls?" And she says, "dunno, can't really say they stick out that much - it'd look better with all black wheels without the silver brake tracks.." So there's that.
