pariba tires??

Does anyone know where i can purchase some pariba tires? I'm not sure what model tire but they are "blonde" in color. They would look tops for a project bike i'm putting together....

If you can find my stolen road bike, you can have my pariba tires. I had the "blonde" ones, I bought them from Nashbar probably three years ago. I haven't seen them anywhere lately though. Good luck.

I currently have them on my Steamroller. They add a nice vintage touch. I just wished I had purchased another set a couple years back when Nashbar had them on sale. Never been able to locate them since...

Anyone have a picture of these blonde Pariba's? Preferably on a bike? I'm looking into buying a set, as the brown/blonde Pariba pro-course are on sale in a Dutch OBS, but I can't find a picture of them.

You might try checking with shops that sell Vredestein as Pariba is a Vredestein brand.

I would guess that these are the blondes right here: http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2005...date/may28.htm

If anyone finds someone with some of these, or something that looks similar, hook a brotha up! They would look great on my ride, and I'm still not totally happy with current tires' performance anyways.
