Subject: [CR]Silk Tubulars for sale at the Cirque

Hi CR folks,

We just received a shipment of tubulars that we'll be taking to the Cirque to sell. They are the new production Silk Criteriums from Challenge, and they look great. We mounted a few on rims and they seemed nice, but what impressed us is that all the tread gluing and details seemed nicely done. According to Challenge, these are their flagship tire and they indeed have received some special care. The bulk packaging from the factory is even special - smaller box and tissue paper seperating them. Challange now has a US agent (formed Challenge USA) who has a fantastic attitude and wants to see folks really happy with their product (and the do have those original Clement molds - oh yea!)

I know that many folks may not have experienced the silk tire Clement experience, and this is probably the best opportunity to come close. They are priced at $149.99 each. So drop by our table at the Cirque on Sunday, inspect them (we'll have a wheel around for you do mount them if you like) and oogle at the prospect of riding something amazing. And for those who have tastes towards the wider tires, we'll have lots of Grand Bois tires in all flavors available.
