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)

Randos in the back and Zaffiros Pros in the front. Good combo?

I want an all white tire setup. Are both tires the same shade of white?

I feel like they will both get dirty and will look the same if they don't already.

Yea dude white tires turn grey. My buddies Randos did it, my soma did it, they all do it. And they don't really clean up either.

That being said, I think the 28C Rando is the best rear tire, especially with my non bike-friendly city and crappy streets.

why not?

@both my zaffi pros and randos are still pretty off white on the side, and slight grey where its in contact with the road.
