    King Kog has some Rubinos. Not pros, but they're decent. I'd recommend Maxxis Detonators. They've lasted the longest out of any tire I've ridden. I think Paragon sports on Bway has some in. I was there this weekend and noticed they carried them.

    Trackstar does have them and I've used them for about a year. Finally wore out. I thought they were pretty great. Tough and lively.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    i was headded from my day job to my night job, it was about 7pm, also i've heard that nyc bikes hates the brakeless crowd, which is ********, i agree with their policy of not selling anything without a brake but no shop has the right to tell me how to ride my bike after its been purchased(my bike isn't from nycbikes, don't worry) also even though a few of the guys in nycbikes are great and very helpful there's that woman there that seems to know almost nothing about bikes and the fact that they don't sell grease is disconcerting, as in they only want to supply bikes for commuters and people that don't want to understand what they're riding...stupid shop

    yeah, if you search you'll really read about how bad they are, i mean the woman who is clueless wouldn't be so bad but she's rude to boot, god i hate that shop the more i think about it. there's seriously 3 great guys that work there, then the woman and the owner are the problems(the woman might be the owner's wife)

    King Kog has them, including some nos(it's been over a year since they made them) white in 700x20, also that's such a sweet little shop, they pack so much stuff into that little space, best shop in the neighborhood
