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)

Cross tires on a 55cm Kilo TT?

Has anyone put cross tires on his/her Kilo,and if so what size/brand?

I have Specialized All Condition 700x28c on it now and it looks like I might fit some 32s but I would like to know before I buy.

Thanks in advance
Sean

probably not on the fork, but if your axle is far back in the track end you can probably fit a 32 with small knobs in back.

why do you want to do this? a kilo makes a terrible off road bike.

Fixed off road is kinda fun and kinda sketchy at the same time. Skidding on trail is horrible for the trails and ruins it for everyone. That being said the guys at the Biz tear it up on SS cross. This is my LBS.
