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)

Fattest tires on KHS 100?

My Conti Top Touring 28mm tires don't have many miles left in them. I'm trying to decide if I should go for another set of 28mm tires or see if I can squeeze something around 32mm in there. Anyone here have any success?

I've gotten 28s on front and rear but don't ride anything bigger than that. If you want to squeeze a 28 in the rear, you need to have to axle back in the track end a little, it won't work if it's too near the seat tube. Half links on the chain come in handy to dial it in.

Thanks, andre. That's pretty much what I'm doing now. I figure I'll save myself a potential headache and stick w/ the 28s.
