You need some spare tubular tires, right?

First things first: Please, please, please do not use BF private messaging or comments in this thread to claim tires. Please use email to contact me (skip.montanaro@gmail.com). It is a royal PITA to keep things straight while trying to juggle three different messaging streams. It is far easier for me to annotate emails (add stars, stick in a special folder, etc). Comments in the thread are fine to say something like "email sent about the Conti Giros," but that's really just you marking your territory to keep the other dogs away from your desired treasures. Now, on with the show.

Over the years, old tubular tires have multiplied in my basement like proverbial rabbits. I saved them against the day when I'd need them as spares, and have used a few from time-to-time. Now I think I have enough good tires and better spares that most of these can be moved along. All at least held air overnight. I took some crappy pix in my basement (sorry, it's raining out and, well, these are admittedly kind of old and crappy anyway). I posted my crappy pix to a Flickr album. Prices are $5 each, 3 for $10 or 7 for $20. Shipping is extra.

Of note are the last three tires in the album. The last two are Wolbers which lack base tapes. They might still be useful as spares, you decide. They are certainly not to be used long term. The one immediately proceeding them is a "made in USSR," so you know it's old, old, old. Still, I've found it to be pretty cool (and it seems like a very well-constructed tire), so have kept it around. Maybe you have a Soviet era wall hanger that could use a period-correct tire?

At the start, here are counts of what I have. I will not make a huge effort to update this count as (and if) tires are claimed.
  • Continental Giro - 4 to start 2
  • Clement Futura - 1
  • Wolber Neo-Pro - 2
  • Schwalbe Milano - 2
  • Vittoria Rally 23 - 2
  • Continental Sprinter - 1
  • Vittoria Pro-Team Corsa CG - 1
  • Vittoria Pro-Team Corsa CX - 1
  • Vittoria Corsa CG Squadre Prof - 2
  • Clement Super Condor - 1
  • Vittoria Mondiale - 1
  • Wolber 33 - 1 (no base tape)
  • Wolber Classic 290 - 1 (no base tape)
  • Unlabeled Soviet era tire - 1

Funny bird that "Made in USSR" tire, that clearly has some English/Latin alphabet mixed in with what looks like Cyrillic too. I never knew the Soviets to export to territories that would have used English as the default for "Country of Origin" labels.
Barum (Czech-made) was a well-regarded brand of tubulars and at least for some time still part of the "Eastern Block". I never tried any but heard they had some models considered "a good value" by those that did.
Thanks for this "extra-good value", Skip!

That's okay. Bernard sent me an actual email. He also just lives down the street so will be able to inspect the merch in person.

haha, gotcha! I purposefully tried to keep the snark at a minimum since it was possible he had actually sent an email. Glad I did, I never would have thought he was your neighbor!

GLWS!

Quickly typing 'pm sent' as a response in the for sale thread has become such a habit, I didn't even stop to think what it stands for...
