    Indeed ! IMHO, Clement Criterium Seta (230 gram SILK !) tires stood head and shoulders above all others as far as feel, resilience, and weight advantage went.
    Back in those days, I spent a fair amount of my disposable income on silk tires and wool shorts & jerseys (Emily K, and Oliver "Butch" Martin were my favorites for merino wool riding gear).

    Yes indeed !
    We used to frequent Kopp`s Cyclery in Princeton NJ, in the days when both Dick Swann and Fred DeLong were there....now THAT was an experience ! :) That place was like Disneyland for cyclists, riders from all over the place would show up there, the parking lot was full of top-of-the-line bikes....Masi, Colnago, Olmo, Bottechia, Bianchi (in that funky green that they called "Celeste"), Schwinn Paramounts, Raleigh Pro`s, Teledyne Titans, customs from Jim Redcay, Tom Kellogg, tandems from the likes of Bob Jackson and Santana, you name it, it showed up at Kopp`s....
    I really miss those days !

    All kinds of goodies in here lol. "Dairy cattle" pattern Scott bar tape, hollowed-pin Regina chain, and machined Sugino crank from an 85 Cannondale SR300.

    Winter is coming, so I built a "garage" for my bikes today:

    Is that chain pre-rusted in anticipation?

    Haha, not quite. It's just been sitting unused outside the previous owner's place for some time.

    I still have the tubular rims for my 72 Fuji Finest. I may have to look at seeing if I can find any 27” tubular tires for it. You guys have reminded me how much fun they were.

    I just found this one today, after it had been stolen friday night. It isn't worth much, money-wise, but I've put a lot of hours into restoring it, and it rides great,so I was seriously bummed when it suddenly wasn't where I'd left it.
