    Ordered some cool tires for future builds and flips. With all the tariff talk, wasn't sure what I would find.

    BMX Guru had some cool tires for $15 each and also found a few on amazon for a couple of bucks more.

    tire order 2019.jpg I would say with "free shipping" - Merry Christmas to any bike builder!

    IMG_1765.JPG Some bikes waiting for new tires. I will post pics of the tires when mounted. Usually online sites have lousy pics of tires.

    I always check amazon to see what is on sale that day. I got my Continental Retros 26 x 2.2 in cream and Duro Beach Bums 26 x 3 for 20 bucks each with free shipping to Hawaii! They stopped doing that right after I got one pair, shipping was probably 50 bucks alone. I was going to invest 120 bucks and hold on to them for future builds. You can find different tires on sale every day.

    [​IMG] Got the above mentioned Conti's mounted on old Monark wheels.
    IMG_0286.JPG These "max classic" tires (from BMX Guru) are on the smaller side of 26 x 2.125, perfect for middleweights with fenders.
