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 Advice: Soma Everwear 700x26

I am hoping to learn that the Soma Everwear (700x26) is not only a good tire but will fit into the Mercier KiloTT frame. Anyone with experience here?

Thanks,
Mike

People have put up to 28's on their kilo's, though it was a tight fit; don't see why this wouldn't work.

They will work fine. They are not as soft as the gatorskin but are great for skidding. If not skidding then get something else.
