This evening I had one of my best rides ever. Period. I was out on the Pogliaghi, so short and stiff with its round chainstays, resplendent in Ferrari red. New Super Champion 32h clinchers polished brite, and a fresh set of Veloflex "Pave" clincher tyres with Conti latex tubes pumped up to 8 bar, the afternoon sun over the passage, no traffic, wowowowowowowowow. FABulous!

The Veloflexes are awesome tires. They feel like a criterium seta only more solid, and VERY straight. 50 bucks they cost. A treat for your vintage ride!
