Yes they did. The most ridiculous flats also. They are comfortable but a headache

That's too bad... especially they talk about them being puncture resistant on the website. They have a extra light version too so I think that would be even more fragile. Thanks for the reply, nice bike btw!

It's awesome. Allows me to not worry about chain tension and rides quietly smooth.

Yessir! Took a while and bunch of microfiber cloths to reach this stage. I'm sure it could look even better if the effort was put towards it.
