FiR: My First Wheels





My first wheels were tubulars made by the Italian company, FiR.

That was on my 1987 Marinoni.

Founded in 1956 by the Arrigoni brothers their first huge win was Stephen Roche riding FiR wheels  winning the 1987 Giro and Tour.

It's one of those cycling things that I wished I kept but I can tell you that those FiR wheels were admired and well used!
