Another Rando tire for 650B

Soma, as we all know, has been diggin the 650B format since 2007 when they showed their B-Side Prototype at Interbike. Since then they have brought the B-Side into production and also brought in the Fire XC tire for 650B under the IRD guise. I am happy to help announce Soma's new tire based on the Panaracer Pasela to be offered in a 650x38B.
Pacenti Cycle Design recently introduce their Pari-Moto tire in this same size. So alt wheel fans should have plenty to rejoice about.
Head over to Rene Herse's blog to read more on the new Soma tire.

I'm waiting for the Mini-moto too.

Me too. I sent an e-mail to Pacenti some time ago, and they told me the Mini Moto wouldn't be ready until late 2010 at the earliest. I just hope they keep the project going, because I am sure there's a nice market niche for such a tyre (and because I want a set for myself, of course.
