    Going Old School

    Decided to go a little "Old School" and add whitewalls to ""THE BEAST"".


    I think that my inner child came out a bit for these remembering back to the days when these were really popular. It was a bit of work finding a company that makes them in this size. Most companies are making the for the beach cruisers and those were just too large. In any case I think they look pretty good........

    Looks great! What size are those? And yes, it's hard to find whitewalls in anything less than balloon sizes.

    Those are 26 X 1.75 tires. Hopefully they will last a while. But I am keeping the other set as a standby just in case.....

    A very nice bike that expresses your vision of cycling with joy!

    Good on you, mate. Good on you..........
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I try and enjoy each and every ride. Of course that's a bit tough on the really crappy weather days. But those just make me appreciate the nice days that much more.....

    Nice, I have some whitewalled Kendas in the garage - 26 x 2.125 knobbies. But these may be better rollers if I was to put one on the rear of my trike:

    The beast looks excellent with the new 'whites'!!

    The ones I have are of a similar tread pattern. A lot less rolling resistance.
