As a result of my recent 1976 Masi GC build, I swapped some wheels around on my various bikes. One switch involved my Raysport, with Campy Tipo large flange hubs laced to fairly wide AVA tubular rims along with slightly wider tires (NOS "Criterium Sprint" tires).

Well I was pleased to find that these wheels softened up the harsher ride this short wheelbase/straight fork bike to provide quite a very comfortable ride!!!

Certain that a set of small flange hubs would change the ride ever more.

While the Raysport ranked low on my list of ride comfort before,,,,,,I really have changed my opinion with the different wheelset, and truly enjoyed the 40 miler just completed on it!!!
