Anyone heard of these tires?

Should be like of like clinchertires but can be mounted on tubular-rims (hmm hope I got this right - mounted on rims for tire and innertubes).

Fantastic color - pink and yellow will look good on my new Ridley in silver, white, black and red :oops:

I didn't really understand your post, but you should check this link.

Tufos are available as classic tubular tire for tubular rims
(fixed with glue/tape) and as a version for clincher rims.

I'd stick with the classic tread for a Cross tire... the diamond pattern is good for dry fast grass and when there's alot of pavement... but how often is that going to happen for a cross race?

If you're asking about the whole Tubular/Clincher tire bit, I think it's been brought up before. Personally I like them, but worth a try (not the diamond pattern shown above).

Yes and thanks - I can see that I was a little bit unclear in the meaning of my topic.

I thought that the Tufo Diamond tire was the only "clincher"-tire for tubular rims but I have now learned that there are several patterns other than the diamond. Like Skyleth points out - it's "whole Tubular/Clincher tire bit" I was thinking about! I will try and do some searching - maybe I can find the old posting!

Found it here - thanks for the advice!
