    Thanks. That makes sense.

Just make sure your hand doesn't get caught between the tire and the seat tube; it CAN happen! Hold your hand close to the seat stays.

    You only need to do this for smooth, thin tires. You've probably already seen this done by experienced riders and just didn't know what it was called.

    Nice thread! I'm doing a 75km fundraiser in early May which I plan to stretch to a metric century. I have a 46x16 gear fixed bike but I plan to switch the rear cog to 17T to lower my gear inches. Will start training soon and theres plenty of encouragement here.
