Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I miss the sound and feel of the old Clément Campione del Mondo silks. I currently use Vittoria Pavé tubulars (with Kevlar) and they are nice, but I am curious what else there might be. I am looking only for fat road tires, 28-30 mm.

Dugast makes a silk casing tire in width up to 27mm, which IIRC is comparable to the Clement Campianato del Mondo tire.

Yeah, I think Challenge and Dugast are your only choices. FMB has some for cyclocross, but not road.

When my stock of Pave's are gone I'll look into these.
