Yeah you're right, they'll stay.
I finally dropped off bits for the wheel build today, which is exciting.
Have been psyching myself up for adding gears and guards and going back to proper functional, and then I saw this:
It's just so good. Makes me want to soldier forward with the impracticality of ss and knobby tyres. Is it the fixie of bikepacking?
I mean you're right in a way, they will be a bit much, but I say use the nice stuff on this bike unless you have an alternative project in the works.
I've done some bikepacking on my single speed pompetamine. But I would say fixed bike packing has got to be the way, just ask @mostly_by_bike
I've got a rim under my desk which is to be built up fixed, at least partially inspired by those scottish fixed gravellers.
I rode it fixed for a couple of weeks on the current wheels with a bolt on cog, but I wasn't confident of the qr or chainline so never really got the most out of it. I sometimes wonder if it's a non-starter, with the peaks being so sharp and steep, but the only thing to do is try!
