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?

My old shop towards the end started to stock more XLC tubes and they failed most often and we probably warrantied at least a quarter of them. Though at that price one could buy a bunch and hopefully never need them.

Windsor Tourist $399 today. Legit sale compared to its actual regular price (not the fake MSRP): Save Up to 60% Off Touring Bikes | Commuting | Commuter Bikes | Windsor Bikes - Tourist
Says today only (6/9).

Edit: Definitely not a one-day sale. It's still going. They are likely clearing out inventory.

that's what I ride on my Wabi. Decent piece. Can't say I've ever noticed a difference in cranks but they sure look nice.

edit: Except FSA. The threads are weak on the non drive side arm (for many models) and it's a known QC problem. Screw FSA cranks!!!

TLDR; I need new 700c30 or 32 tires (new or gently used) for free/cheap/ or on sale can you help


full version: Hey all!* How have you been? I haven't been on BFSSFS in AGES! (for those from circa 2010/2011ish who may or may not remember me)

Anyways, long story short, life changing hip and back injury back in Feb 2011 kept me from using it so much, but alas I miss the ride and transportation and so I turned my rear wheel around on my Pak Rummrunner so that my freewheel is on drive side and I am now on a quest for comfort.* Starting with my tires for now, Wider, maybe a bit knobbier and comfier is what I now seek, but I am limited to a 700c with a maximum width of 30/32( if it doesn't have a fat lip thing on either side of the thread) maybe even a 33 is it isn't knobby.
However,:I am Poor as I still have not received my SSI income I have been awaiting since my injuries and subsequent mental health decline(bad ocd and anxiety got worse afterwards)*
Does anybody have any idea of good, inexpensive places these days to get tires online or if any good tire sales are going on?* I'm a cheap ass and would even consider used ones(if they aren't too worn down) that are cheap/free.

These are good looking and will have some of the best modulation and stopping power of any brake out there.

I got those same Durchee brakes on my Langster, excellent brakes even on the ScRAM TT levers. Can't recommend good pads enough though, with crappy pads they aren't as good but that is any brake really.

Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 - 23mm - $14.07
https://www.merlincycles.com/vittori...yre-47115.html

These are the older Pro III, not the newer G+, but still an amazing tire. I went through countless pairs of these at $35 each.

25's out of stock but still, a killer deal on a great tire.
