You guessed right. 29's will work. good trainer great price. I got one from performance for a hundred $,but it's not a fliud trainer. they are smoother & quieter.

You're probably not going to want to use a knobby MTB rear tire on the trainer, anyways -- get a cheap road or hybrid tire with minimal tread for trainer use.

Another nice thing about that trainer that Gummee linked is that it has adjustable resistance. Most fluid trainers don't. For geared bikes that doesn't matter so much -- you can just shift gears to change the resistance. But since you're on a singlespeed you won't have that option.

I'm either gonna play hooky this AM or this PM. Went for a little ride on the ATK and I wanna go s'more. THAT means I gotta run for a bit 'cause as much fun as the bike (motorized) is, it don't do nuthin for my gut.

As an added bonus, the dog likes running too

So whatcha do is sneak up behind him and hook some fingers in the rails of his saddle and let him tow you.

His ass is so big, he won't notice yer extra weight!



MUCHO fun!

Hah!

Now I feel all studly.

I got in a 60miler last Sat. Of course, it took me 3.5 hours. And it was pretty much all flat. And I was laid up for 24 hours afterward.

But, I feel good.

So when am I gonna get skinny?

BTW: A Fargo is AWESOOMMMMMME!

There'll be others. Always are.

I'm snacking at the moment. So, no shit... there I was... Pulling up to the pump to get some bio-d for the truck.

pat, pat, pat

Hmmm

WhereTF is my wallet?!

Right where I left it this AM. At home.

Good thing that the front tank gets switched to the back tank with about a quarter tank left!! I've been driving around on that. I'm a skotch over the red line... Gonna take LOTS of $$ to fill both tanks!

On a positive note: I'm fixin to go runnin with the dog. He's already askin.
