@High Fist Shin, that Tire Jack™ works like a champ, doesn't it?

Oh, yes! I don't know how I got along without it or why I waited so long to get one.

Now if they can come up with a foldable version. It's too long to fit in my wedge pack. I strap it to the bottom of the pack.

They're on this one now, with pretty close to what the old English guys called ***-paper clearances - maybe I should get a pack of Bugler cigarette papers and confirm that!

Well today I got two items. My matching martano. Grooved sidewall, not really "Correct" for my bike but i couldn't resist. Im a sucker lol. Its hubless and spoke-less but that just means i get to find a Campy Record Rear hub and some spokes. I also got a MUCH needed item. Campagnolo drop out adjusters. Mine were bent. Thats what i get for letting the bike sit in the garage/spare bedroom/wherever for so long.

Any chance you could measure and report the actual width of these?

Thanks

I will try to do so tonight or tomorrow - in the meantime, I will note that this review lists them as 33.26 mm on rims that are dimensionally very similar to mine, about 22.8 mm at the outside edge. That seems about right to me - they fill up the area under the 47-57mm Exage calipers, and required that I take a grinding wheel to the excess fork steerer under the crown to produce sufficient consistent clearance.

They feel good so far on asphalt, and either tomorrow or Saturday I will get to try them on some different surfaces - I'll post about that, too, and I plan on creating a new post about this bike and these tires in the near future.

Got a couple of little things in for my '85 Centurion Ironman. Aluminum valve stem caps, and some MKS pedals After trying out toe clips for a little while, I think I'll stick to my regular double sided flat pedals.

I will write a separate post on the bike later but for now I measure these tires on Araya non-eyeletted 700C rims at 33.9 mm wide and 32.9 mm tall from the upper edge of the rim to the crown of the tread. They're puffy!

Yes - that's the snake skin one. The red is the lizard skin...also have a white variant of that one NIB.



They also had a croc and maybe a rhino?

Rudi seems to be getting better over time, and he was good to start with.

Rudi did an incredible job.

That looks like all day comfort.

Those Regals are super nice as well.

Not exciting from a vintage point of view, but these should keep two of my old bikes in rubber for at least a month I hope. Got the Nashbar cart to 49.34 after a 25% rebate, so free shipping and each tire was only about 8 bucks. Always order three of each so that when they get cut up on Arkansas backroads I have a replacement.

The yellow looks either really cool on my farm equipment orange Schwinn, or like a mail order fixed gear from bikes direct. The others are thickslicks. Never tried them, I have high hopes.

I received a pair of Schwalbe One tires, a saddle bag, and a frame pump. All on sale from Jenson. My shedding cat likes the tires.
