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)

gatorskins are OK on weight and rolling resistance but there is better. My #1 are michelin krylions - much faster, lighter and just as puncture resistant as gatorskins. unfortunately they are hard to find right now. as an alternative i am running Specialized ALL condition pros - light, fast, and puncture resistant. I found them $50 per pair shipped on ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=007

I like to run a michelin prorace2 up front for extra speed and lightness. they arent bad for puncture resistance, too.

Hmm, interesting thread..

I'm about to replace F/B tires on my whip, but over the European side of the water, I found someone who stocks them! Chainreaction of course!

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=20460

Look fairly cheap too, might just go for the Michelin Krylion over the Conti's!

Cheers R.A.U!

you won't be sorry with krylions, but your link shows them available in 2009! if you can wait, you'll like them.
