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)

I'm obviously Asian after reading what I just typed. I don't even know how you understood that, lol.

I'm also from Norcal.

Im currently riding on Michelin Krylion carbon tires which are supposed to be good tires. But I haven't rode on them long enough to determine if that is true.

I'll probably stick with the Thickslicks because they come in white as well, and that makes me look cooler! Black tyres are so mainstream, as well as American spelling of the word tyre.
There's a point where you go from general riding to riding to deliberately destroy your tyres.

Also a point where you go from true story to stretching the truth to lying to:
