Hey everyone. Im in a bit of a bind. I finally put together my fixie and now all I have to do is buy the tires. I had some in my on nashbar.com but now they are out of stock and I called the person and she said she doesnt think nashbar will be getting any in.

Heres the link.
http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...eid=&pagename=

I want the BLUE (to match my bike) but like I said, they are all out. Does anyone know where to find that tire on the web?

Any sites would be awesome.
Thanks.

Bicycletires.com

I can't see if the Nashbar ones have black tread like these ones or not - these ones seem to just have blue sidewall.

*edit* bicycletires.com seem to be out of stock of most colors... sorry 'bout that

I just ordered 2 red ones last week but I haven't received them yet. I feel lucky they had the red ones. Are these good tires?

I purchased the red ones a few months ago, and the color shown on Nashbar's and Vredestein's websites don't match the actual color of the tire. The actual color is much duller the the photo. As far as the tire quality goes, I don't have many miles on them, but so far so good.

I just got mine today. You're right about the dull red color. Happy riding!
