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)

Pretty cool, but I don't know how practical. I can't see the eight bits provided really covering the full range of fasteners likely to be on any bicycle and a single tire lever by itself isn't going to tackle a tough-to-mount tire - that's why most tire lever sets include two or three. IOW, you're likely to have to supplement the tool with other random tools to have something with useful coverage. I also would be surprised if you could put any serious torque on those bits with the way they're pinned into the rect structure - I bet it racks like crazy.

Saw this on ebay, Wheel and Sprocket has 3T Rigida Pro forks for $170 shipped.

3T Rigida Pro Full Carbon Bicycle Fork 700c 1 1 2' 1 1 8' 1 5 | eBay
3T Rigida Pro Full Carbon Bicycle Fork 700c 1 1 4" 1 1 8" 1 25 | eBay

~390g, for tapered steerers. A great fork for your road bike or one of the few track frames with an oversized head tube.

That's a mistake on the website; they're road tires that are only made in 25mm and 23mm.

So they are 23mm then I'm assuming from the URL link? Anybody use these? I wanted gatorskins but am considering these due to the price. Just not sure if I want 23's or not.

I think I have 3 new tires still in the parts bin, but even with only $43 left in the bank until next week, how can I pass up getting a couple of these for that price?

I just ordered a pair - seems like they may be the last ones available. My brother tried to order some and it would force update the quantity to zero.

Having run conti's for well over a decade, it's definitely an acquired taste.
