Hi guys,

Does anyone know were i can get some ''PACERA 700×23C skinwall'' tyres from ?

As fitted to many newish Gios bikes!
http://www.gios.it/bike/?CompactPro

I've got a 1996 Gios Compact coming my way and the tyres on it are Schwalbe all black Ultremo R tyres
though i would like a more older looking tyre to be on my bike [i hate all black tyres]

Maybe i could get them direct from Gios ????

Cheers.
Ian.

No one ever heard of these tyres then ?

Contacted Gios in Italy and Taiwan and as yet no reply. :?

Nothing on the net about Pacera tyres! Does this mean they are 'nasties'

Anyone used/tried Veloflex Master tyres ? How thick is the rubber ? Do they wear well ?

I've used and still riding on some Veloflex Record tyres and they are ace and really grippy and never punctured,despite being ultra light.

I suspect it's a typo. I'm guessing the tyres are Panaracer Pasela. The design of the sticker on the sidewall seems to match.

Thanks for that and the label does look like Panaracer tyres :shock:

The tyres are i think Panaracer Pasela TG road tyres, the TG version with the skin/tanwalls are discontinued but still can be found.


Regards.
Ian.
