General Information
Very good road race tubs. They were not 100% true but better than most.
The herringbone tread suited a front wheel more than rear I always felt.
They were a bit puncture prone as they were quite thin treaded and it wasn't a hard tread- a good compromise if you want to win a race however!
They were not able to handle high pressures...An anecdote...My friend Richard Hare used them front and back and always over inflated them.
In the East Mids Divisional road race in 1987 during the neutralised section I was at the front and heard a massive explosion at the rear of the bunch- I turned to somebody, I think Dave Spencer, and calmly said "That's Richard Hare out of the race then". I was right!
I used a repaired pair of them in the Tour of Ireland one year and was too tired/ill to change them so used them throughout with no problems while the average puncture rate was about 1 every 2 days for everyone else. It rained almost every day (As usual for Ireland!).
