I'm looking for gumwall tubs that will look appropriate on GP4s attached to a Raleigh Gran Sport.

I like the schwalbe milanos, great tubs for the price and look good too.

Thanks for the suggestions. I bagged some on ebay before realising they are latex and therefore totally unsuitable for everyday use. Doh! Expect to see them for sale here soon :lol:

There's nothing wrong with tubs with latex tubes in them, they ride much better than butyl and can easily be repaired with caffelatex or simliar, so long as they have a removable valve core.

which ones did you get?

Its more the issue of having to pump them up every time you want to go for a spin. I got Vittoria Corsa CXs. Are they any good?
