    Why would you want 4.5?

    I'd personally rather have more resistance, it's not like i'm not going to be able to spin on them, i just will also get a better workout from it?

    ha! you'll know the first time you ride your 2.25s...

    i log 3k+ hilly miles per year, roughly 1/2 fixed, and my 4.5s work me pretty hard with a 48x17.

    I have the middle resistance ones - 3" drums - lyte, myte?? Not sure of the name. There is no substitute for Kreitler. I got my sis a pr in 1991, and she still uses them every winter (she got me into cycling yesteryear) and only had to replace the belts a couple of times.

    Well, i didn't expect them to be easy, but after searching through the training and road cycling forums on here, it seemed like people though even the mytes could be spun out in a large gear on a road bike, so I think in the long run, it will be good for me.

    I like the idea that you can just remove air from your tires if you want more resistance, although I'm sure that might affect handling too...
    for me working on spinning usually entails riding at higher rpm's than I would necessarily like to, so that I can heighten that threshold when I'm going at maximum effort on a higher gearing...
    plus the big rollers look cooler...switching gears wouldn't be the worst thing

    i stand corrected...mine are the 3". i still maintain that unless you run a low gear (or are a cat1), the 2.25s will kick your ass to the point of surrender and you won't use 'em.

    what gear are you planning to run?

    also, low tire pressure will increase resistance for sure...and quickly destroy your tires.

    And, considering that this is the Singlespeed & Fixed Gear forum, that is the most important element in making a bike related purchase. No?
