If you sport coloured tires you are a faggot.
Tyres should be black, to signify a no-compromise design.

This is now a zertz thread

No-compromise design is actually milky white. Black is from added soot.

this looks sick and you know it
>>
>>1298350
why do they add soot, even in high performance tires where every gram counts?
>>

you're right, I want to fucking vomit from looking at that consumerist trash

>>1298408
rotational weight is different lad
>>
>>1298409

>mfw you let the UCI tell you how to ride
>>
>>1298416
that was my first post about this
i think it's either
>there are preformance/ durability reasons for them to be black (quick googling seems to suggest this)
>pro cycle racing is after all about selling bikes to freds, so they're just not allowed

if there were actually marginal gains to be had, and dropping even 5 grams of rotational weight at no other cost would be one, i think they'd have done it
>>
>manual cagers are so insecure they need others to approve of their fucking tyre colour scheme

>caring about the UCI rules outside pro races
Let's be honest there are no pro riders in /n/ so the only place where any of us would have to comply to the UCI rules is if we happen to race in the national championships for whatever irrelevant country we happen to live in.

If you go up and sign up for a Cat 5 amateur race that is under USA Cycling you will have to follow UCI rules.

Shame that ACP and Courier Cup aren’t UCI eh
>>
>>1297597
I bet youre fun at parties

>>1298779
And when is the last time you've seen anyone check bikes for their weight, if the frames and wheelsets are UCI approved, or if the setup follows the rules?
>>
>>1298790
shut the fuck up and never use this shitty phrase again
>>
>>1298818
found the gumwall faggot
>>1298350
Its not soot it is carbon black.
It aids in increasing grip and prolonging theblifespan of the tire.
>>
>>1297744
They were cool. Boonen's tires are cooler, though.
