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)

Color tires in 28mm or larger?

Working on a new fixed gear project, and I'm trying to find color tires (red) in 28 or larger. Best I can find so far is Conti Grand Prix 4000s in 25 (700c).

Anyone know who makes color tread or sidewall tires (preferrably red) in 28 or larger?

there are plenty of cx tires that fit your requirements if you don't mind a little tread.
