Has anyone ever come across any 700c tyres that are butterscotch/amber/skin colour?
Like butterscotch Psychos or Dart Magic but bigger and skinnier (and slicker)?

Yikes! They're £199.99 each now :shock:
I don't have tubular wheels (or £400 to spare!) so I'll have to keep searching.

These are available. I ran a pair on my tourer, only mine were black. Very comfy, but possibly a bit heavier than you want.

Thanks ibif, will have a look around. Let me know if you remember!

Chris, those are great colour-wise but you're right: a bit beefier than what I'm after. Cheers for the tip though!

The only thing I can remember is that they had cloth side walls with a green Hutchinson sticker on. Sorry, the chances of me remebering the name are slim to nil.

Pariba did them too but they aren't exactly commonplace.

Well, the colour's right but you'd have to be a nutter to use these on the road!
