Hi there
I have an old racing bike from the mid 1960s with Vittoria Olimpionico
tubulars which are a bit perished now!
Does anyone know what the equivalent modern size is now as these tubs
seem to be unavailable now
I think I bought the last one about 15 years ago
Many thanks

All 700c tubs are the same size (diameter that is, widths will vary) so any will do. A probable alternative to the Olimpionico is the Vittoria Rallye which is readily available (Wiggle, Chain Reaction, Parkers etc.) and is not to expensive but shop around for the best buy.
