Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I hope to god you have a belt to match your wheels. Just kidding, there's nothing wrong with wanting your bike to look nice, the troll was just irresistable.

vredestein makes the fortezzas in white but they're a little pricey as well. I ran a fortezza tri comp on a tour and it was super comfy and runs uberhigh pressures.

just saying....it's my understanding that black tires/treads have carbon and that the carbon helps the tires last longer. the reason colored tires have black strips down the middle...a white strip where the black would be seems counterproductive to me, especially on a fixed gear.

what I meant by function is that the open corsa evo cx is an excellent tire, on top of sporting colors that will match your ride.

fwiw, i beleive it's identical to the rubino pro, save that it has a 290TPI casing

white isn't practical. it's very functional. color threads grip better but wear out faster, that's why they use color threads on the corners of skinnier tires, skinnier tires don't corner very good. carbon tires (black threads) take longer to wear out but they dont have as good as grip as colored rubber

Not if you don't ride your bike.
