Swobo Introduces the Divine for 2013
IMG_2061

With Swobo under new ownership, they’ve taken their single speed and fixed gear line back towards the States. The Divine is their new city fixed gear, made in the USA and shown here, as a PAUL Component build for around $1,800 dollars. They’ll also be offering up a Taiwanese parts build for around $1,200 but who can Resist some PAUL parts? Expect these to hit your LBS’ shelves in 2013. I dig it. Replace that stem, bar and saddle and that’s a nice looking build.

Check out some more shots below!

Winter Bicycles: Thin Iggy Road
Winter_ThinIggy-02

There are so many dialed-in road builds popping up these days but this is one of the most unique. Eric Estlund from Winter Bicycles sent his latest beauty over, as shot by Anthony Berano from Velo Cult. His road bike, dubbed the “Thin Iggy” can fit a 35c Resist Nomad, but has plenty of room for fenders with the 28c Nomad (shown, sans fenders). As a throwback, Eric put some compact rings on a pair of Cook Brothers cranks and a wild paint job. This is simply amazing. See the rest of Anthony’s great photographs here!

Resist Nomad 28c
ResistTires

See larger here

After a catastrophic blowout on my last tire where a beer and pride was lost, I headed out to my shed, La Maison de Fixie to see what tires I had in stock. Resist sent me a box of sample tires some time ago and I had completely forgotten about the 28c Nomads that were in the package. After some finagling, I managed to squeeze one on the Icarus. The tread is rather nice. You can attest to that if you’ve ridden them on your fixed freestyle rig. Skidding is consistent and aside from the blue label (drive side only), the tires are devoid of any flashy branding.

I’ve had these on for about two weeks with no issues but like all tires, the more you skid on them, the more prone you are to punctures. If you get the opportunity to, give them a whirl. Check out more details here, at Resist.

This is the first in a few posts on tires I’ll be making over the next few days, so stay tuned.

Resist: Bald and Out Contest
Ian'sBMW

Resist just posted up this contest to win a free set of Nomad tires:

“For all you guys that have completely bald, ripped or shredded tires, we have the contest for you.  Send us a picture via our Facebook wall of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement of new Resist Nomad tires.  Is it that simple? YES!  Read more for the rules.

Date of Contest Ending: July 2012

Contest:
Send us a picture of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement set of new Resist Nomad tires.  It would help if you also sent us a picture of your complete bike also.  We obviously can’t give free tires out to everyone out there and we’ll be judging on who best deserves the tires.  We’ll only consider worn out tires that have been ridden and won’t accept a new looking tire with slashes or rips that looks like it could have been deliberately done.

How to submit your worn out tire.
All submissions have to be submitted to our Facebook Wall.  Also helps if you LIKE our page too.

Wins:
A free set of Nomad tires (sidewall colors and sizes may vary due to current inventory).

Rules: 
1. Contests are only for Continental US residents (unless winner wants to pay for the overseas shipping)
2. We’ll only accept 1 entry per person.”

This one’s easy!

I Couldn’t Resist
Resist Nomad Gumwall 45c

So there I was, looking at the Jack Brown tires, thinking I wanted some gumwall action on my Geekhouse Woodville touring bike. Because, you know, nothing’s classier on a purple touring bike than gumwalls. The only problem is, I have this bike, with all this clearance for tires and fenders, so I wanted to go bigger than 33c. I looked over in the corner of my office and there were the two Resist Nomad skin tires I had on my Bruiser. 45c, big, fat, round, gumwall tires. I couldn’t Resist.
