I have been talking with the great folks at Merry Sales about bringing a new 700x38mm tire to market fora while now. IMO the best platform is to use the existing Soma New Express mold and casing from the 700×37 tire they currently sell and have a batch made up without the hypertex casing. This has worked with great reception on the 650b version of the tire. Having put many miles on both versions of the 650b tire as well as the relatively new 700×37 New Express I am convinced that a “C Line” would be my Goldilocks tire.
At this point I need your help in picking a color for the first run
As with all projects of this nature there will be one color for the first batch, once consumer reception is felt out we can move to have batches made up in more than one color.
