Sexy In Black
The white show tires are great for well, show. I still much prefer the look of white tires on the trike. Like a certain rug that brings the room together, the white tires help bring home the old school feel.
Saying that, these new black tires I bought for a faster ride are easy on the eyes are they not? The front tires are Primo Comets. The 1.3 and 1.5 Comets are in common use but Primo also manufactures the Comet in 1.95 and 2.1 sizes. The 1.95 is shown on my sweet sweet trike. The rear tire is a Schwalbe Big Apple. I may eventually try the cushioned ride of the Big Apple on all three wheels. Even with centerpoint steering the fat Comets make turning slightly more effort. All three tires are considerably heavier than the white tires, but at the same time provide a faster ride.
