    That's a great news. It is an option that was missing in their lineup.

    I am curious to see how true to 27 they are. Probably they will be quite a bit smaller than FMB 27 and close to a real 27.

    That is a great addition to the Veloflex lineup. If it runs true to size -like most Veloflex tubulars- It will be a great size tire to maximise volume while still fitting many bikes that will not accommodate many of the current "fat tubular" offerings on the market. I love the tread pattern-small diamond file from side to side with the pattern slightly deeper toward the edges.

    As you know better than most, it's been in their lineup for a long time, it just hasn't been available to the public...

    I kinda wish it was also available in a black sidewall—easier to maintain.

    The interesting thing is that this tire has its own treadband unique to this model....Veloflex makes its own treads, which sets them apart from the other smaller tubular makers who source their treadbands from larger companies. Veloflex also will not sell treadbands to their competitors so they clearly are anticipating enough demand to justify their investment. It is not offered yet, but I am sure that a similar width clincher will not be far behind.

    Sounds perfect. Anyone know where to find them or pricing? My google-fu didn't turn up any retailers....

    I have one pair of FMB P-R 27s waiting to be glued up, and would seriously consider these instead.

    Clinchers???? No need.

    If anyone can find them, it's you. Do keep us in the loop on your explorations.

    I'm sure you guys are anxious to find them for NEXT year as certainly nobody would buy tires of this caliber for use without aging them properly for at least a season.....

    Exactly. That's why ordering 4 to 6 is urgent.

    I wouldn't age a modern tubular unless I'm sure it is brand new. Some have the date printed on the base tape. Most already spend a few months in a warehouse, I don't see what would come good by aging them more.

    In this case they would be aged until my current P-R batch is worn out.
