Well, there are Dugasts out there, very fine tires, handmade, silk option available. But nevertheless i second that opinion about Veloflexes. They are as good as Dugasts IMO, and its not a major step towards bancrupcy if you happen to blow two of them on one day what happened to me with the Dugasts). I still would buy Dugasts as a top note to a very special bicycle, but for riding, its Veloflex.
