I've developed an infatuation with my beater, an old twelve speed Motobecan. I'm slowly upgrading it (cheaply, with sanity) mechanically and now I'm thinking of ways to make it look even prettier. I think my new road bike (and my wife) will face stiff competition for my attentions if I find some blue tires to match the well preserved steely blue frame.
I've replaced 27'' wheels with 700x23's so I have alot of tire options, but I can't seem to find any blue walled tires around. It's been rumored that Continental GP 3000's come in colors but I've yet to locate them.
How about some cheaper tires, since it's a beater bike being upgraded sanely? Maxxis detonators look nice, come in blue, and are cheap. Expensive racing tires won't last as long. Detonators are nice and simple.
