    Baby needs a new pair of shoes

    So, I'm down to cord and need some new rubber for my baby. I already know what brand/model of tire I want, but which color? What say you?

    Not yellow, unless you put lightning bolts on your helmet or blue bar tape and saddle. These mods will unfortunately end your ability to digest lime Gatorade.

    I think that Spearmint Green or a Brilliant Cloud White would be a sweet contrast to your Red..And would give it that classic Italian flare...

    Red, white, and black would look good on BBM's bike, but Team Quickstep is blue and white... looks like a mislabel and should be Team CSC.

    Personally, I'm in my black period.

    Intriguing.....

    So, where would I find specs on these tires, and where might I find the actual tires? Are they Michelin Pro2 or Continental GP4000 level in performance?

    Even though I've never liked colored tires, I have to agree in this case.

    Or I'd go with those Specialized tires too.
