  4. Troy,
    I know where you can buy a power band. well actually I have two of them.
    They are for sale. @ $ 55-00
    A mate of mine has pin stripes on his wheels. He did it with pin-striping tape. looks similar to some Moto GP bikes.

    They sure out smart many guys.
    And as Kishy said they do improve the appearance

  10. Thank you Sharpy

    Horses for courses. Personally, I think they improve the look of the rims/bike. But each to their own :)

    Dunno if I can come at coloured tyres. But I guess, if they were made say red all along, then I would'nt like black, Hey.
