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)

Kenda kontender Lite

I want to know if these tyres are truly the garbage i think they are, or am i just having bad luck?
Has anyones else used them? because my experience with them as been Infuriating, I've had a flat on EVERY single ride for the past week, i can now pull+patch+reinstall a tube in less than 5min. not that isnt usefull, but the tyres are garbage, and the holes have all been on the outside of the tube, and i check for bits of glass and such, every time. Kenda Kontenders are F$$$$%$king garbage

I had about 4 flats in a week with my Kenda's and just switched to Gatorskins, I'm definitely happy I did.
