I think those white ones would be even nicer on a Ti bike. 8)


Kaiser - I agree they would look ace but my Ti bike is my main bike and they are way too heavy as they aren't kevlar - at 660gr each they are 200gr heavier than the tyres I'm running now and 260gr heavier than my race tyres :shock:


I think you'll need to get yourself a newsboy then :wink:

My collection will beat all of yours :wink: I just wish I could get into the garage to take a picture, why do women always put stuff just inside the door? Loads of room at the back of the garage, no room to get through the door without - tripping over stuff / knocking over stuff / hurting yourself on stuff - none of which is mine
