- has anybody put a pair of Sweetskinz on their X? I think these would
be rad and just one more way to stay safe while riding at night.
What do you think?
- Yeahh Buddy, I got sweetskinz on my X. They are great. I have the red and yellow colored set, crusier style. They are bright, quite smooth, and reflective at night time. They are sweet tires indeed!!!Holler
I have been thinking of ordering a couple of the SweetSkinz MTB Semi-Slick 26”x1.95 Rattleback tires. I think that coloring in particular would look pretty hot on the Olive Drab coloring of the Big Dummy I have.
For years I have always ridden with 1.5” Kevlar Avocet inverted-tread tires. I am not sure if I will really like the wider and more textured 1.95 SweetSkinz tires. Unfortunately Avocet no longer seems to be distributing the Kevlar 26” tires I prefer. I think the SweetSkinz would be a decent and definitely cool-looking alternative, but I am concerned they will not be anywhere near as durable and puncture resistant. I suppose inserting a tuffy strip in the tire might help.
I might be delayed in ordering any SweetSkinz though. My wife and I just bought our first home and we have to make sure we have enough money to do some of the work, which is needed. Plus, I do actually have a new tire from Nashbar as a spare for the mean time, so I can not justify buying $40 tires right now. If you do decide to order them, please do let me know how they are and how they hold up.
- get em! and post pics...uhh... so what do ya think of El Stupido Grandei could swear street skinz made a reflective tire.On Aug 3, 2008, at 10:01 PM, Tone wrote:
