Your color combo is the best they have had yet (in my opinion). What kind of tire is that on the front? It looks like a MONSTER...!

Uh Oh! I just recently repainted by TW. Perhaps an oops? I painted the frame and plastics an Almond color, which basically looks sort of sand color. I did like the original color just fine, and for that matter there are not many of the color combos I don't like, I just wanted to be different.

And the front tire is a Bridgestone TW42 (Trail Wing 42). I do not recommend it if you do much riding off road. I do most of my riding on gravel, dirt, and logging type roads and it does not handle very well. Slides around a lot on the loose stuff. By looking at the tread pattern it looks like it should do ok, but not nearly as well as I had hoped for. The side walls of the tire are very, very stiff. To compensate in loose road conditions, I let the air out. With almost no air in the tire, it doesn't even look flat. Now, this is probably not good, having almost no air in the tire, for pavement driving. I do think the tire does just fine on dry pavement, and I say that because I have not ridden with it in wet conditions on pavement.

Since I do so much "trail riding" with my TW, I plan to purchase either a Kenda K270 or SR244 Golden Boy. By all accounts, they both have very similar tread patterns and do well in more off-road situations. I've been told they last about the same with the SR244 being a little cheaper cost wise. I did some checking on prices and found on average the SR244 about $10 cheaper, but a deal can be found anywhere.
