Got a set of tubular wheels on the way but have never used them before. Looking for a set of reaasonably priced gum wall tyres, as they're more for looks than regular use. Been looking at Conti Giro and Vittoria Rally but both get mixed reviews. What are you guys running?

Some recent info here - not easily spotted as the title does not mention tubs!

I use(d) tubulars as long as I ride on a racebike. All brands has been on the rims. In earlier days Hutchinsons, later on Wolber and Vittoria. And nowadays I do have a set of Continental Giro's. Cheap and really comfort as well as less punctures. But you buy them as store them for at least half a year before using.

Get some Dugasts if you're not going to be using them often for that touch of class

Does it count if they've been in a dark corner at a shop for at least twice that length of time?
