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)

Tire Size Question

Can I use a 26in x 22mm tire in place of a 700x23c tire?

good luck getting it on the rim, you'll have a rough time trying to put it on.
