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)

Interesting idea. I would be curious to see how well they hold up to normal wear and tear, as well as dirt and grime.

Just don't tell the hipsters, they may question your commitment.

you can easily fashion yourself some reflective tape into rim tape.

okay, it's not that easy, at least not with the good stuff.

This is just automotive vinyl, the same stuff you see as lettering and logos on on the personal vehicles of small business owners. As long as you dont have a lot of road dirt and rain they'll hold up for a 6 months before looking like hell, and they are a PITA to take off when its time to change them. You will do just as good with a rattlecan job, ie. it's ghetto crap.

Notice there are no ACTUAL pictures on the site.

Never heard of it? Really? That's strange...being that you own the domain.
