Disappointing brown

I ordered a pair of BROWN Continental Retro Ride 26 Inch Tires. The color shown on the net is a nice chocolate brown.

The actual, real life color is a lighter, muddy, almost pinkish brown. I'm really disappointed. I won't put these on my Townie.

Smooth speed rollers that I bought for my 1941 Rollfast, They have a vintage look on my bike. I love these tires. I wish they made a 26x2.35 model.

Super comfy, pretty quick and look sweet

Bought these for my bike because I'd fitted a pair on my daughter's cruiser and loved how comfy they felt. The brown tires look ace on my converted 26 mtbtourer with fat Wald fenders. Since buying, I've been researching tire width vs speed, and at the right pressure (40psi) they are pretty much as quick as anything I've tried, at half the price of fancier equivalents.

Classy retro tire for my daughter's cruiser bike

I put a pair of these on a Specialized Shark cruiser that my wife found at Goodwill for $20. It's a sweet ride if I do say so myself. These tires cap it off with a retro look. Their width offers a very stable ride and they are very supple. They were a cinch to mount.

Nice comfortable ride

Nice soft ride with these tires. Wish there was better puncture protection, got a flat after riding about 14 miles from a thorn, I was riding on the pavement too. Otherwise, its a nice comfortable ride. Bought these cause the color matched the original tire colors that were on my 1998 Gary Fisher Aquila.

These tires significantly changed the ride of my bike, a 1952 Schwinn tandem. If you are looking for cushy, this is it. It's a nice cush... and the reflective sidewall is great. I wish that it had a kevlar belt to prevent flats, but otherwise, it's all I want for this bike.
