    vredestein made a track tire that was all gum. i've only been able to find them on one mailorder place and they were charging like $40 to ship a pair so i passed.

    DaSy... PM me if you want to buy and ship a pair for me.

    MLPROJECT:
    Parker International in the UK do them for 13.95 each, and a flat rate shipping cost of 15 to the States and to be honest, I probably couldn't pack and ship them myself for that money.
    Here's a link...........Fortezza Track

    Here's a pic of them on my Peugeot Track bike, the dark ring around them is where they have been ridden on my aluminium rollers.
    I got them from Parkers and can vouch for them being a reputable company to deal with.

    Christ, is that the /$ exchange rate nowadays! Oh yeah, just checked and it's 1.97 to the pound.

    Also had a look at shipping quotes and I can't find anything under about 50 quid, these companies are mentalists!

    Yep the dollar is worthless against the pound. If you are from the UK, you should visit the states and enjoy yourself. It will cost you nothing.

    To be honest, the price we pay for just about everything over here, a trip to anywhere seems like playtime.

    Veggiemafia: thanks, it's probably gonna get it's first outing on the track tonight, so far it's only been on rollers.

    more durable but more expensive... Panaracer Paselas. if you get the ones with tourguard, they're stronger than gatorskins. i've never flatted on 'em.

    (But now i will, just for saying that...)

    Michelin Eriliums are gumwalls, I have one on the front, but they suck for skidding. Performance has them from time to time.

    Thanks, as Serendipper said above, it's a Selle Italia Storika, and I'm really impressed with it. It's really light, with copper plated titanium rails and no padding, just thick Brooks style saddle leather bronze riveted over cutouts in the saddle base. It looks great, weighs very little and is really comfortable. I think they retail over here for around 75, but I got it brand new in the box for 40 from ebay, so quite happy with that.

    Si.
