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)

If you look closely, those are true "clincher" tires. Modern "clinchers" are actually wired-ons. Note that there is no side braking surface, and brakes of yore pulled up on the bottom surface of the rim. I hope that thing has a coaster brake; it must be a bear to stop by back pedalling / skidding / ted shred.
