    Bianchi Rekord tubs advice

    Just bought a c 1975(?) Bianchi Rekord 745 with Valentino gears and Universal brakes on eBay.it. it was to be a little light nostalgia, and a reminder of how far bicycles have come. I usually ride a 2006 Bianchi 1885. Ridden up and down our lane all seemed OK, and although the original tubs looked, well, 35 years old I liked the period touch. I soon realised the tyres needed a bit more pressure, and duly stuck 80psi in each. Two surprisingly large bangs followed...

    Problem is there's no markings on the tyres - anyone know what sizes they should be? Seem larger tahn the 700/23s on the modern

    Thanks - more at http://www.teambenzina.co.uk/teamblog/ 12th August entry

    Hello and welcome to Bike Forums.

    You might post the question in Classic and Vintage Forum, they know all about old bikes.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
