Thanks in advance,

Eric Elman Somers, CT I haven't seen the listing nor the description, but we syll have a small spindle (yes, a wooden SPINDLE that doesn't rotate, like a steel SPINDLE that is used to SPINDLE papers on my desk) full of these on the wall. We caled them clinchubulars. They seem ti be tubeless or have a tube ratrher pewrmanently vulcanived (as opposed to sewn) into the, They feed inrto the rim similar to the more contemporary Tufo tubeless clinchers. They were repaired with a plug and / or solution-thru-valve-hole method.
