Colored tires - post 'em if you got 'em

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The whitewalls would go with my white handlebar tape and white seat. It matches my white furry hat (with peacock feather) and cane.

I think that would pretty pimpin' though.

tufo makes some tubulars with a red tread and white sidewall, 215gram, down to about 135gram for the track.

The blue went great with my Centurion, but I had to toss them, as they are worn out, and those Rubinos weren't the best for commuting. I have since changed to Ultra Gator Skins.

You'd love mine, red w/ white/skin walls. I HATE the skinwalls personally. I have been very tempted to color them in with some paint or something. They'r'e Vittoria Action Pro's.

Oh, and don't take Skin wall as a racist term, that's what I've always referred to them as. I realise it's not very PC, so don't be offended if your skin isn't the color of my tires .

I'm surprised this thread hasn't been locked out yet to all but OCP card-carrying members.

My wife has blue Vredstein Fortezzas, I think I got them at Performance.
We like the brand, and have good luck with them in the past.

My Rivendell Ruffy Tuffy tires have white sidewalls, but at 27c they prob won't fit your bike.

Yesterday I saw a guy with Lavendar colored tires. I'm pretty secure in my own masculinity, but personally I don't think I could pull that one off.

I haven't seen any green ones yet...I would sure like to find a set of green tires to match my bike...along with some green bar tape (the tape is Lord Opie's idea).

I don't know, big?

Actually it is a 61cm TT frame, about the same TT as a 63 cm road bike... don't the wheels look like 650 cc?

BTW if you did not know I am 6'6"
