If you never want to have a flat ever again, get Animals.

Dear WTP,

How does it feel to have such a nice bike, but brutally **** it with the presence of those tires?

I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with Animal tires.

i got the maxxis ringworms ( 110 psi ) and they hold up really good. strong and thick. plus the high psi keeps my tires from pinching, which was a serious problem for me for a while.

This is my dumpy PowerLite P-17 I picked up at Goodwill for $25. Since this photo was taken I stripped off the OEM decals and added my own... Now when I ride around the neighborhood I can tell my wife I'm out dropping the FBomb.




Its a bit small so I'm in the market for either a cruiser or a XL framed 20". I have done nothing to the bike as I simply wanted something I could jump on and ride at a moment's notice. I normally ride road and race at the velodrome, but that is more involved and certainly not safe at night. This is just so simple and care-free, I love BMX. I know the seat is too high... but otherwise it throttles my knees! Excuses, excuses, I know I should be shot for such a heinous crime... I'll tell you, these rival my track racing bike for quad workouts!

That's a nice-looking bike. We don't really see too many flatland bikes

If those Plegs in the back are 14mm, don't throw them out, I'll take them off your hands.

. . . I officially went brakeless. . . couldn't deal with adjusting my brakes anymore. Plus the bolt holding the cable is stripped(and it isn't tight enough to hold the cable) so that is 98% of the reason. This shall be interesting. I switched my back tire out again to The Walls, the 1.95 of the other tire just couldn't cut it.
