Unrelated, but this is just a mock-up of the bike, nothing is actually installed completely. I'm painting the frame tomorrow, it's going to be Hugger Orange if any of you are familiar with that color from classic camaros?

I bleed hugger orange, but it's mostly from fixing my broke down Chevies lol. Still love them though. What kind of tires are those? Are they completely slick as they look in the picture?

Yeah, I just got the frame primed today. They're thickslicks. 26 x 2", they are completely slick, yeah. Here's the link.

EDIT: that's the wheelset lol, but the tires are 26 x 2 thickslicks.

I don't plan on going to the track, but it definitely looks like a racer yeah.

EDIT: I read somewhere that tread on bike tires don't help really in the rain, and that it's more about the stickiness of the compound, and I never ride in the rain, so I thought they'd be good tires.
