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)

New "Fixie" skidding tire...

http://www.schwalbe.com/gbl/en/produ..._subPoint=Race

For Bikes without Brakes.

Specially developed for "fixie" bikes where transmission braking can lock the back wheel and is extremely tread abrasive. Durano Skid can withstand such "abuse" considerably longer than other tires thanks to its deeper and abrasion resistant tread. Its strong rubber-coated side wall also affords better durability.

Cool. Nice to see bit companies addressing such a niche market. I wuold probly buy it if it has as much grip as an everwear.

nice thought but I prefer a wider tire, my roads aren't smooth enough for a 25c
