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 think some secret formula in the tires that make one more sticky. I heard some kid road up a wall on the S version. But then again I may be lying.

As far as I know, GP 4000S and the black GP 4000 are the same, both of them contain the "Black Chili" compound. However, the coloured versions of GP 4000 does not contain the Black Chili compound.

I picked up a set of Rb-021 for $5 a long time ago, I hated it so I sold it for $30.

I just bought them. I'll probably mount them like once and then go back to my road drops with hoods. Maybe when I feel like making my ****ty conversion look super hip I'll throw them on.
