I know most of this community doesn't enjoy fixies, and especially trendy fixie brands like critical, pure fix, vilano, etc. with the colorful wheels and gimmicky shit, but I said fuck it and bought one anyways, and I have had a lot of fun with it, dare i say more than my cyclocross bike (forgive me).
But one other thing that this community has taught me is to not give a fuck what anyone else thinks as long as you are enjoying yourself.
I am using this bike as a base to improve on anyways, I am going to upgrade as I go, but one of the bigger reasons I went with pure fix is because they have pretty damned good customer service and are always improving on their hardware.

Cagers at it again
>Daniel Watkiss, 30, was driving in Stoke Newington in East London last July when he attempted to overtake James Falle, who was cycling.
>Mr Falle signalled for him to pass and accidentally touched his wing mirror, causing Watkiss to stop suddenly in front of the cyclist.
>He demanded £50 for payment for the damage, later found by the judge not to exist, and when the Mr Falle refused, Watkiss began strangling him by his helmet straps and going through his pockets looking for money.
>“The next thing I knew he had grabbed my helmet and pulled me across my bike and into the road,” the Daily Mail reported Mr Falle as saying in court.
“The strap on my helmet was strangling me; I couldn't breathe at this stage. I was trying to undo the helmet with one hand, but that was impossible while I was still being dragged forward.”
>Watkiss then hit him on the face and neck before driving off leaving Mr Falle in the road with bloody knees, cuts and bruises.

What is /n/'s opinion of Continental Gatorskin tires, and are there equivalents I should know about?
im in the market for some new tires, i live in a industrial part of los angeles county where there is alot of debris on the road, broken glass, bits of steel, broken asphalt and concrete from heavy traffic, and the occasional thorn. I currently am using the WTB Alterrainasaurus 26x1.6 that came on the bike, they are pretty tough but i will go through tubes every month or so, and im using my bike as my commuter so i cant afford to be late because of a flat.
