Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

New Rubber

I received a set of SweetSkinz tires. I was only able to mount one though as I am awaiting the third tire. One of these was not reflective and I had to reorder. In the mean time I am posting a shot of the rear tire. This one is called the Rattleback. It seems to handle pretty good although I have only had it on there for one day. I'll post more when thet others are mounted.

these are some great looking tires, if they work half well I think they will be winners.

If my tires looked like that, I'd be afraid to turn my back on them. They're awfully fat - are they designed for BMX?

They look like someone wrapped some fat Albino Corn Snakes around your rims

Darn good choice!!!! They do look a little like that. In regular light they look like a Diamondback Rattlesnake.
