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)

Can anyone I.D. these tires?




i've been searching for a solid white (or close to it) track/road tire for a few weeks now. a lot of what i have found here in the states are white with black side-walls. there seem to be a ton of solid white bmx tires on the market, but none that i can find for us folk. anyone know if the tires in the above pic are from japan? im guessing they are, as it is from the Kalavinka site. the pic gives me hope. anyone with an ID on them? thanks.

Well, that certainly does look like a solid white tire to me. For some people might be solid red X though.

Also, the velocity site doesnt say anything about deep v tubulars. They wouldnt make them. It wouldnt make sense. Because they have the pro elite...which they say is essentially a deep v but a tubular rim.
And doesnt come in white, BTW.

Tubular deep v's do exist, I've seen a pair here on the streets of NYC and here's one for instance-

I did after my post went through. Regardless, the point I and a few other forum members were pointing out is that it very well could be a tubie after all. I was just suggesting that one should not rule out a tubular.

Didn't we have this exact thread with that exact picture a few months ago? I think someone had the answer.

A pic of the color offerings from the veltec, Vreadsteins distributor's, catalog showing colors

While the tire comes in white, unfortunately not all white.

Good tires none the less.

Deep Vs come in Tubular, just because you have never seen them does not mean they do not exist. (I have seen them.)

All im going on is the Velocity site. Nothing more. Which clearly shows that Velocity making a deep V in a tubular would be 100% stupid when they have the Pro-Elite. Which they describe as "Take the Deep V and make it tubular and the result is the Pro Elite." Now why they **** would they make the Deep V a tubular when they have that? The Pro-Elite is obviously what youve seen.
They say its available in Silver, Black and Gold.
