General Information
Bought these in the mid- to late-1980s and never used them.  They were touted to be similar to Clement's Criterium (who knows).  According to the tag on the presta valve and on the sidewall, they were made in Thailand and cost a whopping $29.99, plus tax and shipping.  I checked, Performance apparently no longer sells tires under its corporate logo and the only tubulars for sale are Continental, Vittoria, and Vredestein Forrtezza, and they sell for a tad more than $29.99...
