Hi , i'm new on here and in the middle of building up a lovely ALAN, its a NOS 1995 frame that i've fitted with campag and cinelli and ive managed to find new mavic open 4cd rims but can seem to find any nice gumwall tyres to suit the rims, can you still get these or are all tyres blackwalls now?

Hi. Just started a Merckx Corsa Extra build and found some really good amber wall tyres on ebay.

They're listed as 25c tyres but I would say they're more like a 23c tyre width wise.

Haven't had the opportunity to give them a good test yet but they look good and various reviews rate them quite highly.

For something a bit narrower, Veloflex still make gumwall 700c tyres in 22mm and 20mm formats.
