Hi,
> In the day we just used to fold up the tire, place it in a sock,

Another list member from germany told me, that some cyclists at the l'eroica wrapped the tire in an old issue of the la gazetta dello sport- an italien magazine printed on pink paper. http://www.gazzetta.it/Speciali/Giroditalia/2004/eng/la_storia/ and used a leather strip (pedal strip I guess) to attach it.

I think this is cheap, simple and extremely stylish (even if I'm not a fan of italian cycles in general).

best regards, Richard
