Caterpillar moved my department to TX in 2016.
The Gloria was purchased in Austin and is in the San Antonio area now; maybe someday if I get a chance to move back to IL

25 is the biggest I would ride. Those are tubulars pictured, as is proper.

You could perhaps fit some 28's in there, but top end 1990's steel stage race frames are not designed to be clad with that clunky a tire. Why do you need a fat tire on a good road?
