    anyone having problems with the cheap tubes from the trexlertown flea market

    sorry this isn't exclusively fixed/single speed but i know a lot of philadelphia are people post on this section of the board
    i've gone through 5 in the past couple days, 2 popped when i was trying to pump them up, didn't even get passed 100 psi, and a couple more tore right near the valve after a couple miles riding
    i have gatorskin tires in good shape

    no problems here, hundreds of miles put on them already with gatorskins. Check your rims and tires, may be another problem.

    ..

    No probs here. Hell, i've never even tried them. The funnel cake from the lexatose flea market didn't last long at all though.
