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)

no problems here, hundreds of miles put on them already with gatorskins. Check your rims and tires, may be another problem.

No probs here. Hell, i've never even tried them. The funnel cake from the lexatose flea market didn't last long at all though.
