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 have them on both my bikes. The rear one on my fixed gear is well over a year old and still holding up fine, though i plan on replacing it soon.

I've had them on my bike for a few months now, and they are still holding up. There is a bit of wear on the back tire but nothing to worry about, yet.

I rode them on an old 10-speed. After about 500 miles, the rear developed a pinhead-sized hole. I was commuting 10 miles on real ****ty streets, though.

I've been using them every day for couriering for a few months. They are extremely solid for the price, and I never seem to get flats on them (knock on wood).

I got one on the back of my road bike. Me thinks it's pretty legit.

I replaced a set of Conti Ultra Sports (wire bead) with a set of Seca RS's folding. Have to say the Conti's rode smoother probably due to higher thread count. Your right tho, price is hard to pass up considering the weight savings. Think in the future I'm going to save my pennys and get a set of the Conti Grand Prix 4000's. In all my research, the GP 4000"s seem to be the best.
