Back in the 90s my bike mentor person showed me two fresh tires: a Continental Baja 1.9 and a Ritchey Megabyte 2.1. The Baja smelled like wine, deep and floral, manufactured in Europe. The Ritchey smelled rich and little cold, made in Asia. It was a hell of a contrast. Do they even still make bike tires in Europe? Maybe the Contis weren't even made in Europe, I never checked. But I do smell my new tires, every time. I recently saw an ancient Conti Baja on a bike locked up in the city and had a little flashback and briefly missed the bad old days.
