Purple Tyres

Sun on your face - purple haze

Is there anything better than riding with golden sunlight on your face? Sunglasses on, cotton cap, no coat and a single speed without guards. How long can it last?

Recently I have fitted Halo Twin rail, courier tyres (700c x 24) in ecclesiastical purple; they are super grippy in the wet and very fast in the dry. So far, a confidence inspiring tyre.

Coloured tyres? – have always received a mixed reaction from an aesthetic perspective, mine are chosen because I like the fixed / courier look and not because of a David Icke purple fetish. My “Freedom Road” is all about the bike and not global conspiracy.
