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)

what are we looking at the plastic saucers bolted over a spoked 26" coster brake wheel, or the ****** tire. I'm pretty sure you can find those tires all over the place. I'm not sure where you can find the plastic dsiks, but even less sure why you would want to. Who the hell wants to bolt 2 extra pounds to their rear wheel for purely aesthetic purposes?

I don't think those discs bolt on over the spokes, I think they ARE the spokes. I do remember seeing plastic discs bolted on over the spokes on BMX wheels BITD, purportedly for aerodynamics. "Sure kid, whatever you say" was always my response. They do make a cool whooshing sound though.

That's like about $37 for two plastic disks that do nothing but add some weight. Line up suckers.
