    Chrome Paramount Math (more pictures + Gommitalia tires)

    A pair of Rigida 700C's w/Campagnolo hubs plus two strips of Velox tape, a pair of Gommitalia Targa tires, and a pair of tubes...



    ...equals this:







    Popped into Business Cycles today and picked up what I needed to get rubber on these rims (with exception to the tubes, which I had). These Gommitalias look beautiful, but fit tighter then anything I've ever seen - I ended up having to spot-true both rims after working the last part of the bead over it. Then again, what else can you expect from soft Rigidas?

    I dare say they look the part, though. Classic, understated, and high pressure. Just what it needed.

    Are them tires affordable? The tight fit isnt very pleasing to hear about but they sure look nice

    $35/ea from John at Business Cycles (though I'm not aware as to whether that was a local price or not). Figure in rim strips and tubes, and you're in about $90-100 for one bike.
