Anyone heard of any manufacturers that are selling any skin walled tyres? Google and asking many bike shops reveal zero!
Any help will be appreciated!
Will be posting up pics as soon as I'm able to.
Re skinwall tyres...There are some Ritcheys I think, Charge Splashback, Halo twinrail - those are modern tyres with skinwall carcasses- bike-discount.de have Panaracer Smoke/Dart reissues, firstflightbikes have Panaracer Timbuk II which are era appropriate for mid 80s through early 90s.
Pics of the Prairie Breaker!
I have a '94 (I think...maybe '93) Prairie Breaker Pro.
Its a bare frame again now, I found some serious misalignment after its last rider stint and decided to retire it.
