What are the tires on this Brompton?

Brompton on eBay.

Who makes the tires, please? They're listed on the spec sheet as the Greens.

Regards
T

Wow, that is one beautifully tricked out Brompton. I wonder how it fold with the direct pull brakes. It sure looks lovely with those components - I wonder if it has a Ti back end

About the tires, they are bullet proof. I have the same tires on my Brompton and have yet to suffer a flat since I got the bike here in NYC.

Looking at the big photos on the flickr pages linked from the auction, the rear frame and forks aren't Ti - you can see the gold/brass brazing around the joints. I guess it'd be pretty hard to add v-brake bosses to Ti parts unless you know someone that can source/ fabricate and then weld on the parts.

Always nice to see a nicely modded B - It looks sweet with those low-angle riser bars and aeroheat rims...
Low gearing though. Spin much?

PS - 'Greens' are made directly for Brompton by an undisclosed supplier.
