These ones were bought on ebay from the bikeshop in Holland. They came with original boxes...
I agree they look great, but you should ride in a very clean enviroment with them :-)

Yeah, wondering why modern tyres are mostly available in black. I think it is quite cool to have some different colour - even with modern bikes.
Imagine some orange (nice thing for Orange bikes), red or whatever.
If it is available for roadies, should not be impossible for mtbs either.

Forgot to mention, I have just bought old rigid cr-mo fork manufactured by Klein (the straight one), so when I collect it and paint it I may come back to rigid for a while. I can't stand a desire to make the wooly pluto even more clean and simple.

Ehhmm, not really :oops: .
Before fitting Tiogas and Ringle Zooka it was 10.1. As previous Thomson stem and Schwalbe Fast Fred were lighter, I think it must be around 10.5 right now. I must drop into a bike shop and hang it on a scale next week.
