Hello Richard and all:

This message brings to mind a thought I have had from time to time over the years, and I know it sounds strange, but has anyone ever tried to fill an old tubular with some kind of foam, to help them keep their shape for display purposes only? I don't know if I really want to do this, but the thought keeps coming up, and some of my bikes don't get ridden at all and it costs too much to keep replacing tubulars every time they dry up and stop holding air.
