Andy Hampsten’s supercool Moots manufactured titanium travel/touring bike was featured recently in Cyclingnews.com. I noticed he had these exceptionally cool tires from Rivendell–33mm road tires with just a hint of texture. Gorgeous tires, and they looked like something that might be a real option around here on a cross bike (or the Chief’s wide-brake special, which is what the Giro-winning Hampsten runs).
The tires are there on Rivendell, and I came across a curious new model they have. The Saluki! Unfortunately, it’s being discontinued, as they no longer want to be associated with Salukis. Still, this is a gorgeous bike!! Not many left….one in 58cm….
