Whoah !! $169 for a single tire. That is an investment right there. I thought you could get certain Challenge tubulars in silk (or was it Veloflex?). I will check the Bike24 website which is where I think I saw them.

Found it: Challenge Strada Bianchi Setas for just under 80 euros (30 mm width) - realize they may not be handbuilt to the same level as the FMB but much more affordable.

They also have FMB tubulars but I did not see any in 30mm on the bike24 site. I did see an FMB Paris Roubaix 27mm width tubular for ~ 84 euro (cotton).
