So, a build thread will be forthcoming at some point, as I progress the restoration of an old condor baracchi frameset, but the project seems to evolve with every component I acquire. Originally the plan was to build a mostly vintage correct bike, with some modern conveniences, such as dual pivot brakes and tubeless tyres (28mm). The latest evolution came about when I found some well priced, almost NOS Mavic GP4 rims. So tubeless has become tubular, and now I'm thinking, that maybe, since the wheels are period correct, the tyres should be too. I don't ride anything narrower than a 25mm tyre right now, and the thought of 22mm tubs is a bit intimidating to me, but having mounted a manky old skinny tub on the wheel and mocked it up in the rear dropouts, it does look somehow more 'right' with the skinny tyre. The bike will be a dry days only bike, with velvet carpet treatment, so all day comfort isn't top of my agenda, but I've heard legend that a 22mm tub is as comfy as a 25mm clincher anyway. Bullshit or truth?
