Does anyone know anything about these tubulars in the attached photos? I bought them several years ago at a bike swap and forgot I had them until recently. They measure ~26mm wide. The tread looks like it is made for grass or other fast courses.
I am wondering if they are any good and worth gluing on.
I appreciate any help.
Barnums. The magazine had a very good writeup about the history of tires I think two issues ago. Definitely worth consulting.
Do they hold air?
Thank you and yes, they hold air nicely. They have never been glued. I just dry mounted them on a pair of rims. I have that issue with the history of tubular tires. I will check it out.
Do you know if these were decent tires back in their day?
