View Full Version : Gone - Free to Good Home, New tubular tire with a small cut

Ok, I've taken the tubular plunge, but I'm not going to get into repairing tubular tires.

On offer is a free Vittoria Open Corsa CR used for a total of about 50 miles before I flatted. It has a very small cut, 3-4 mm long, on the sidewall up near the basetape. If you're the handy type who can patch this and maybe put a small piece of Tyvek in there as a boot, it may make a suitable spare for you.

You can see the details of the Vittoria Open Corsa CR at vittoria.com. It is a 220 TPI cotton casing in a 700x22 size and has the Vittoria Puncture Resistant Belt. These tires go for around $30 at Ribble.

If no one wants it, I'm going to pitch it. $4.00 paypal to cover postage within the Continental US. If one of the wise sages of the forum says its a bad idea to fix this tire as a spare, I'll pull the listing and ditch the tire too.
