You got any old knackered high performance tubs knocking about Shaun ??? Strip them for the lovely latex tubes or buy them new!

Be prepared to pump the tyres up every week though.

I pump up latex tubes for every ride. A bit tedious so I only run latex on my race bike.

Records plus latex are about as good as it gets.

Thanks for all the photo's and ideas guys. I've actually learnt something new, 'open tubulars'!! That does bring up a few more choices.

I like the Challenge Fortes, Veloflex Master and the Vittoria Open Corsa they all have a good amber colour :) The Michelins and Schwalbe's look a bit pale. It's pretty bad when the shade of amber becomes a selling issue!

Great price on the Challenge Criterium at Planet X at £21.49 but they only have white walls in stock :(
