    Vittoria Martello

    Just picked up a pair of Martello's. Sizing might not be to accurate. The tire and the website says 27.5x2.35 and 57-584 (2.35 is 59). Mounted one tire on a 27mm inside width rim and looked kind of narrow especially compared to the Magic Mary that I removed also a 27.5x2.35. Did the math and 57 is actually 2.25 which is about what it measures. 0.100" is not really a big deal so I will see how it performs. I did e-mail Vittoria about the discrepancy so I will wait and see. Anybody have any experience with the Martello?

    Yes if you did a simple search of "Martello" you would see.

    I have and did read your post. And I will agree. I was trying to see if I could get more feedback by starting a new thread. Ran one of the two I purchased on the front today. Not bad but not what I was looking for. For the size a little heavy, did role well, did have better dampening qualities than the Magic Mary. Leaning over into turns felt ok than let loose and than quickly caught it self. This was all on hard pack and loose over hard. In the softer stuff (pine needle loam) it was a no go. May work better as a rear in the 2.35 but it's really a 2.25
