Sorry to go on about Veloflex, but here is a link to their 24mm Pave Tyre which are black. FS Maestro cycles stock them

Continental do a 25mm tub in black (greyish?) which is as big as the Vittoria and very fast rolling

I LIKE the green Vittoria tyres!

Well done Nick! I've followed suit.

Maybe if they get half a dozen requests they might do a Friday afternoon run of them?

According to...........

The green ones are "super PRO" !!!

I could get used to them. Maybe they look better in the flesh/rubber :?

I promise you they don't. When they're new you could be forgiven for finding them funky, in a Kermit the frog-stylee. When they get dirty they look minging.

Perhaps it's possible to blacken them with a marker pen???

I got this reply from Vittoria:

Dear Derek,

thanks for the feedback, we take note. We're working on, you'll see something on some Pro-Tour sponsored bike next year probably...

Best regards

But how will I spot them if they aren't lurid green?
