can anyone point me the right direction in the way of traditional gum wall, decent tread, winter tyres and tubulars, please? i've still to get hold of a pair of shimano 8 speed wheels for the eddy merckx that i'm building and depending on what tyres are available will decide whether i go for sprints or wired-ons.

thanks

craig

Panaracer Paselas have remained little changed superficially in 20-odd years as a training tyre.

Challenge do some tan-wall tubulars including the Pariji Roubaix - not cheap though

Second that on the Panaracer tyres!

These tyres seem to be very puncture resistant and very grippy.

When I go to Skeggy again I'll see about getting a pair
