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 can tell you that the tires are made by CST and they have a really high rolling resistance. I bought some 700x25c CST's and they were not as fast as my cheap kenda 700x28's I would replace them if you can.

Your friend got hurt because he was riding a PK Ripper brakeless. With orange tires.
