Riding to work y-day on my fixie, coming down a moderate hill in traffic, at about 22mph, I hear the dreaded pisssssssss. A flat. Front tire.Not good. Thank God for cutouts in curbs. I somehow got up onto the curb without going down. Nice little adrenaline rush before work!

Glad your ok. Front tire flats really suck. I'm using Mr.Tuffy tire liners on my single speed. I'll deal with the extra weight.

never flat again... well, with these tires anyway. The ride on these tires sucks though.

They have been pretty durable, but I will probably flat as soon as I say that...
Thanks guys.look271

I'm using IRC kevlar belted tires. I have alot of miles on the fixie so far and this has been the 1st you-know-what. I'm a little limited as the wheels are 27 inch.I may go with Conti gatorbacks if it happens too often (read-1 more time!). I saw where I can get them in a 27X 1 1/4.
