I'm riding on Super Champion Modele 58's, 40H rear and 32H front. The tires are 27x1" Raleigh-branded IRC Roadlite gumwalls and I ride them at 100 psi, which is their maximum. No problems so far.

Wrong, Iride01:

Milton Keynes: "There really is no protecting of the foam," "...the plastic shell is not there to protect the foam. It's to allow the foam to slide on the pavement."

I see the biggest impediment to a larger and better L'Eroica (U.S.) event as the riders, themselves. Enthusiasm for, and the consistent riding of, vintage bikes should be much more prevalent, but as...
