    It looks like this poor bike had a run in with a can of black spray paint. And I mean everything.

    I've heard that steel belted radial tires did exist for bikes. I think they were made by Panaracer back in the 80's.

    Yes, they did. Not steel-belted, but radial ply, anyway. Trek used them on their short-lived model 890 city bike back in the mid 80s. They had a decidedly weird ride -- I don't think radials are a good idea for 2-wheeled vehicles. AFAIK, the advantage to radial tires on cars is that the sidewall is more flexible, allowing the tread patch to stay in closer contact with the road in corners. Bias-ply tires would tend to lift on corners, losing grip. But unlike cars, bicycles can lean on corners, which means the tire contact patch just moves off the centerline of the tire in a corner, but doesn't necessarily lose grip. The soft sidewalls didn't really confer any advantage on a bike, and (IMHO, anyway) detracted from the ride quality.

    I think there was a steel mesh in some tires. I guess it didn't work well, because it didn't catch on.

    The varsity owner got back to me last night. It is as bad as I feared. I told them to check completed
    listings on ebay. Maybe they will, and maybe they won't.,,,,BD

    Yep, I had those radial tires on my Miyata 1000, when I got it. They looked to be original to the bike. I loved the idea, but one overly braked rear wheel left the tread on the road. Way too dried out. I replaced
    them with some Vittoria Randonneurs, and the handling improved by at least ten times. I wish I could have a new set of the radials, to decide for myself.,,,,BD

    Yep, I e-mailed the seller and expressed doubt that he would get any takers on the $10,000.

    He e-mailed back with thanks.

    Wolber made a steel mesh belted tire back in the day and Panaracer made a nylon belted radial tire.

    My daughter is applying to Lewis and Clark College (in Portland). I don't think we'll be able to go for an interview and visit, but I wish. I've never been there, and I am dying to visit. Maybe she'll end up going there. The danger is that if I go there, I may never want to come back home.

    Never thought I'd see the day when an ultra high-end carbon fibre bike had a freaking U-lock mount on it, and the saddle stupendously low.
    Wow...
    I couldn't read the ad, though. The writing style was hard to understand.

    If I opened an ad with that many words I would just hit the back key on the browser ASAFP.
