    @Elra it's a cedar of Lebanon, according to @Vanneau, not a fir.

    Really glad you tagged another one!

    So no-one's got a gumwall tyre that skids predictably, apart from mantas' suggestion of the BLB Black Mamba. My experience of Paselas is that they're a bit too grippy, and jerky to skid.

    I've been using Randonneurs on my one-braked fixed winter bike for ages and I really can't fault them on wear and skid control, just that they're a bit sluggish compared to a fancy roadie tyre.

    This enquiry is for a fixieskidder I've been meaning to build.

    I guess I'll forget the gumwall thing, and just go for rando, detonators or durano plus on the back, and something a bit less hardcore on the front.

    Something spinny with lots of skid patches like 47x19. Why do you ask?

    Oh yes, I adore holm oaks. Have spotted a few in Brockley. My parents in law have a couple in Suffolk. New Orleans has some absolutely beautiful varieties I saw there in Audubon Park, some with huge roundish acorns the size of quails' eggs.

    @middleofnowhere No, it's as close as I want to get to that thieving greco-german pirate dynasty and their masonic baby eating shapeshifting lizard funny business.
