    Yeah the Conti GP3000s should be on sale too since the GP4000s are now the hot ****. Either way, they've got both in orange.

    so heres my idea of some custom flair to my new langster...



    too much of a pumkin or what? I was originally gunna go with red, but ive seen to many others with the red/ black, so i though dark grey/orange was a fresh idea. What do you guys think?

    i looked long and hard for some orange bar tape for my girlfriend and finally found some, but i can't tell you where i got it. not because it's secret info or anything, i just can't remember.

    i just ordered some orange cinelli cork tape, so thats taken care of(thanks visitordesign).

    Next comes some orange tires, but i really hope that it looks as good in person as it does in photoshop.

    and thanks for all the tire reconmendation Im really leaning towards the gp4000 orvredestein fortezza tricomp, but haven't made up my mind.

    shants is right. dunno how well this photo shows off the tire, but if you want orange (and an awesome tire to boot), you can't miss with these:

    Already have the orange bar tape and orange tire on one bike. The other bike is painted like a creamsicle (see the Bike Pic Thread) ... so there, I did it already and you cant! PATENT PENDING!

    The Conti's are more like a dark School Bus Yellow, but they're absolutely awesome tires.

    Highly recommended.
