I was considering buying these to use on the Paris Roubaix sportive, are they the best tyre for this, what others should I consider?

I will be fitting the to mavic kyseriums on a cervelo r5 vwd, what is the widest width I can fit and avoid rubbing? And other than buying all the possible tyres and fitting how else do folks know what width tyres their bikes will support. Thanks in advance for your answers.

I used this tyre on Paris Roubaix in 2014 and on the same bike but my wheels were HED Ardennes 23mm wide - much wider than your Mavics. Should fit but it'll be tight.

Are they foldable?

As I'm not going to use them all year round, I want to know if I can fold them and store them for the next year after this winter has finished.

What does the 'Long' or 'Short' refer to?

Is the 'long' below the knee or are they different thigh lengths?

different thigh lengths - go to assos web site to check - but it is easy to buy wrong ones.

 Garmin GSC 10 Wireless Speed/Cadence Sensor
Garmin GSC 10 Wireless Speed/Cadence Sensor
Most cycle orientated Garmin GPS's have a speed and cadence feature, you will need this Garmin GSC10 Speed/Cadence Sensor to make use of this.
 

Can you please tell me what is included with the cadence monitor?

Are the zip ties and the wheel and crank magnets included or do I need to purchase these separately?
Top 500 Contributor
Top 500 Contributor
yes - 5mm 200cm ties and magnets. Replacements difficult to source or ridiculously expensive from Garmin
