I don't care if they are 'the world's best tyre'. I ain't using them if they are gumwall.

Please, someone tell me they will be available in all black.

Regular 23 & 25 are going to be available in a dark grey sidewall version in late February/early March. 28 are due in April/May.

Not gum wall. Natural tan. The world doesn't revolve around blacked out bikes

can we please get confirmation on whether it is dark grey or tan that is actually the new black?

or was dark grey only the new black for a few hours?

things move fast in the fashion world...

I had a few pairs of 25mm tires in Sydney.. All gone now though. And they are a lot closer to 27mm mounted than 25mm have had 2 swap out a pit of 25s for 23s as they wouldn't fit the bike. Haven't seen the blacks yet but will get em as soon as they land

Not a big fan of gumwalls but the #louisvuitton cream walls look awesome. Much like a 1950s hotrod tire..

I agree those look awesome. Will have those on my new bike too.
My only gripe is that the (supposed) higher quality Corsa Speed G+ is only available in 23c and the regular Corsa G+ is available in 23c, 25c and 28c...

@ sugarkane: Which bar tape is that? That black with red accents is what I'm looking for...

It's red to black fade @busymanbicycles tape. He makes the best custom tape and saddle covering in the world. Lots of the custom bikes I do use his tape. It's very good stuff

In that quarter pic of the Parlee above, are both derailleur cables routed on the left side of the frame? If so, why? Or has the cable that would have been on the right side photoshopped out?

They definitely seem a little wider on the rim. Would be curious to see measurements - my 23's look and feel like 25's. Having said that, best tire I have ridden to date I think.

Yes they are both routed on the left side. If I remember correctly, this iteration of the Parlee Z5SLi was one of their first both mech/electronic compatible frames, with electronic routing being the preferred option, but while still remaining mechanical compatible. I guess they thought routing all cables through that one port would be the overall cleanest option.

According to the vittoria site, the rubino speed pro should be lighter and all Black. I ordered those
