Old Standard 26" wheel

I suppose there is no more manufacturing parts for those old standard bicycles...like tires and tubes,or are we just running on the left over inventory...and salvaging used parts were ever we can get em.
I know that fixing the old standard stuff is way tougher then the new standard stuff..esp. fixing flats is a real headache with that old standard

Surlely you all know what I'm taking about...the new standard measures threw axle to the outside of you tire which gives you 26"...the old standard measured threw axle to the outer edge of rim.
But checking back I was going to see if we should take a poll and see how many people are in favor of keeping old standard or tossing old standard..my vote is for tossing old standard
