    Who makes the best cream colored 26" tire?

    The 2 brands I've found are Fat Franks, and Quick Bricks. I have a set of both, but neither have many miles on them, and neither has been used with a motor yet.

    Any prefrences?

  2. Electra Vintage Diamond 26x2.35s are a nice tyre also . I have a pair waiting for my new bike . no miles on them yet but should have them on the road this week .

    How's the bead on them?

    I just discovered a problem with my fat franks. they don't have much of a bead. last night I found the tire had popped off the rim while sitting on the workstand. Granted, its a very wide rim, but the tire was hanging free, inflated to 20lbs, and the tube still managed to push the tire off the rim. Quickbricks have a thick bead, and sit really well on these rims.
  7. Interesting , I tried to get some Schwalbes but the Electra/Felt rep ended up sending the Diamonds to the bike shop so thats what I ended up with , sounds like I got a better tyre ,
    I compared the beads to Some Thick Briicks I have hanging up and they have just as good a bead . good to know .
