Just bumped into a pair of citron 517s. Did my best to lace them to decent hubs. What about the result?

I'm just old fashion and believe their is only one colour and that is black for tyres. Plenty on here who will disagree :wink:

I agree, but they were 10 Euro each! And in a rare 1.75 format!
I kinda appreciate ummagummas tho...

1.75 WoW that's good size not too narrow (1.5) but nothing too fat (2.5)
No wonder you bought them :)

yeaH, I can't understand why there aren't many around: just zmaxes - it's a fantastc size for what I call mixtricking: mixing road and offroad. They are so much better than the 1.5 crossroads I used to have. The only defect is the excessively soft blue compound, which worns very quickly.
