I think this is a very interesting and appropriate topic, and one of the things this list SHOULD be about. This is the kind of stuff I file away as valuable resource information.

Anyway, I'm always on the lookout for vintage-looking contemporary quality clinchers. While vintage tubies are okay (and can still be found), really-vintage clinchers leave A LOT to be desired. I want my vintage bikes that sport clinchers to have the right "look", or close to it, but I also want the performance modern tires offer. I also like having choices, and will note and compare the options whenever possible. I have just ordered a pair of Clement Gavia Pro tires. From the pictures, both the Ventoux and the Gavia Pro look very traditional. File tread, black with tan sidewall. Even semi-traditional looking yellow and blue sidewall labels. We'll see what they look like in real life.
