Always good seeing 26" MTBs getting a second life. Tire choice is great, and love the 1x setup on your Giant. Cheers!

Thanks. The Giant is actually a hybrid, but I do have a 26 inch Trek MTB that I do all my mountain biking on.

The only part where there is ice is the bike parking. The roads are clear.

It's so creative but it looks really beautiful. I like it very much. Should I redo my bike like that?

I was able to obtain a pair of colorful 26 x 1.50 high-pressure Kenda Kwests on Amazon several years ago. Last year, one of them had a cord separation and I had to retire it - but I haven't been able to find a replacement tire in color. So I have a red tire staring at me in the shed wondering when it's going to get used again.

So cool! Did you buy the tires like this or did you paint them?

Thanks. They were really cheap Swobo cruiser tires. About 200 wher shipped to the local co op a while ago when the company shut down. They were originally colored like that but they also came in black with white walls.
