Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Tires / Brakes for Langster

Anyone know the widest tire I could use on a 2004 Langster? I have the stock tires on it now, but would like something a little beefier (I think).

Also, I'm thinking of replacing the stock brakes, because they seem to suck. Any suggestions, without spending too much $?

Thanks

replace the pads with some nice coolstop ones, that will make alot more difference then replaceing the calipers in most cases.
