    I know Schwalbe makes a 700x25 in gumwall, but for the life of me I can't remember the name. Google will probably find it.

    I got some cheapo nashbars cause I liked the look on my old conversion. Even took me a few months to wear through them doing skids regularly, though they aren't exactly the smoothest rolling tire out there.

    Can someone explain the fascination with gumwalls? I think they look ugly on every bike.

    I have Pasela's. But they're 28mm... I think they'll end up being too wide for my new frame.

    Lose the heavy Deep V's and get a proper box section rim like a Mavic OP in silver and that would do justice to the Veloflex Paves.

    I have those same tires on my new Madone

    pffft. i really like these forums where these holier-than-thou show up from nowhere and tell you what to do.

    btw, dude: 1) this is not a photo of my bike 2) these are not deep v

    Well, I guess it kind of makes sense with the brown hoods and leather saddle.

    But then again those really aren't gumwall are they? Tubulars just have the natural cotton carcass exposed without any "gum" on the side "walls".

    are you serious. i've been riding one for a week and there is almost no evidence of rubber gone.
    i've ridden the fortezza's before and you can ride them until the threads show all the way around if you have alot of skid patches.
