General Information
I bought this tire in 1976 for cyclocross style off road riding. I used it on the rear for 3-4 years. It had great traction and it still holds air! The tire is marked 27 x 1 1/4 which is how the Germans designated sewup tire sizes in those days. It's about a 700 x 32c. This tire set me back almost $35 (dealer cost) back in 1976. "QUERFELDEIN" translates into Cyclocross.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 The Continental AG (in Germany commonly known as Conti) is today one of world's largest tire manufacturers. Most bicycle tire production is located in Korbach where tubular tires are still handmade. In the early years they were very successful (for example, in the years 1896 and 1897 they paid out a 55%-dividend!) and have grown from a plant with 250 employees in 1875 up to 13.000 in 1914. This rapid development originates from the prosperity of the bicycle industry, itself quickened by the invention of the pneumatic tire.
