The black wheels are 28mm....so when you get a compound on a 28mm rim it will be black. Also the black rim is a little stiffer then the yellow one. TRC never offered 28mm until now and they are all on black rims.

Well, I beg to differ. I have some Plaid 28mm I bought like two weeks BEFORE I left for snowbirds and they are yellow. Lots of the tires they were selling at the trinity booth were 28mm and they were ALL yellow. If you went out to the truing table, you could see where people cut them back down to either 26 or 27 mm.

The Plaids and Purples that I have are on Yellow Dish wheels also. I just think they can't make up their minds.

The 30 Pairs I bought from the Trinity Booth are all 28mm and Yellow.

My friend has the black wheels and he said they were for team drivers.

Will the belt that comes with the XXX4 kit be the same as the current green belt or will it be a bit narrower?

Thanks.
