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)

yellow tires 700c x 28?

Where can I get a set of yellow (or yellow/black) tires with a decent tread without breaking the bank? Michelin Oriums & Speediums only come in 700x23 and I'd like to go wider...

Online searches are turning up CST (Cheng Shin - makers of Maxxis Tires) Super HP tires. Are these junk?

Any help is appreciated!

Can't find anything in 700x28 in those, either.

Thanks, though.

I'm going with the all-yellow CSTs. I've read some pretty good stuff about 'em and they're the only thing I can find in 700x28.
