Wow. I've used mine for a few hundred miles now including some steep descents. I've had some warping but nothing like that.
I'll switch back to the Galfer.

I went down today after hitting a pothole that I didn't see. I slid on the non drive side resulting in minor damage to my dropout and a very small scuff on the tip of my lever. I'm more scuffed than the bike but I was able to finish the ride strong and I'll just have some painful road rash for the next week or 2.
It was a beautiful ride otherwise.ImageImage

I'm pretty sure they should work with new Red.
You can DM @SQUICCHI.

I will probably put the New RED on this bike. I'm hoping to get just below 6kg.

I used an M6-10x14mm barrel nut and it had to be shaved down to be 13mm wide in order to fit.
I found a flathead countersunk M6 bolt that fit because the head was narrow enough but most countersunk bolts have a head diameter that is too wide to fit in the seatpost wedge. Ti-Parts does sell a specific bolt for the SL8 seatpost wedge so I'd recommend just going that route.

They do blow up quite a bit
I wonder if a 25F 28R would be the way to go
I think it is. I ordered a 25mm for the front. The rims are 30mm ext. so I'm hoping a 25mm, assuming it inflates to 27-28mm will work better with the 105 rule, while also saving 40g. (My 28mm tires came in at 260g each).
Image
Please update on the actual width once they arrive
28mm wide at 80psi. 211g vs 258g for the 28.
The bike is now at 6.165 with 40ml of sealant in each tire.

I just ordered the Farsports Hyper Carbon 24IW/30EW and just wanted to ask for confirmation if the 25mm GP 5000 TR TT tires blow up to 28mm with about 80PSI?
Orignially I planned to pair them with the 28mm to adhere to the 105 rule...

The 25mm TT TR measures 29mm at 80psi on those wheels.
The 28mm I have in the rear measures 31.7mm.

Thanks for the answer! Then I'll have to go with the 25mm
