When I got my new Bruiser, I swore off any tire smaller than a 2″ but since riding BMX more and more, I kind of like the way a 45c tire feels on a fixed freestyle bike, especially with a wider rim. When Resist posted about their new Nomad tires in a gumwall, I had to have them. I love gumwall tires and almost all of my bikes are rolling on them.
Today we rode around and pending further abuse, I can say that these feel great. They skid super consistent, which was a big change from my Michelin City tire I had on the back. I only wish they made these in a 50c+ size because I like to ride with a bigger tire on the front.
Next up is a pair of 35c for the touring bike! Check out more photos at my Flickr.
