The ratbike - my daily commuter, an Orange C-16R covered with reflective tape and gaffer tape. Front wheel Campag Record on ceramic X618, rear Phil Wood on standard X618, bars Nitto Bullhorns (original battleship grey), brakes Onza HO (eek!), cranks Specialized Son of Strongarm (I think), gearing 42:14 fixed wheel.

This to me is a great slicked mtb. Big fat slicks, nice low bars and a very clean look 8) my ideal vision of a urban cruiser, a kind of bike I'd love to build if I had a use :D

I guess you can go down to 1.5" slicks on 'standard' rims, are you guys using narrow rims for the 1" slicks?

My 1998 Lavadome, I use it to get around Brighton, and it's been deposed for off road duties by my Explosif, The pannier rack is for cycling to uni.

I use my 1" slicks on standard, modern rims and they work fine.

Here's my Coyote Easton Ultralite wearing Vittoria Randoneurs. Nice light and fast ride. Used for commuting when i can and local rides with the kids etc.

I also use it for some longer road rides, especially in winter when I dont want to get my roadie dirty. :wink:
