Hi my name is Bertram from Singapore. I ride a road bike, looking to get a fixed gear and become one of the very few, if not the only fixed gear rider in my country. My only gripe is that fixed gear parts are *almost* non-existent in my country (if you count in Dura-Ace Track. :rolleyes: ). Fixed gear bikes are even harder to find. Anyone has something to recommend apart from conversions? People looking to sell off their fixies to get a new one are very much welcome :D .

Welcome, njwbert....that's a loooong way from me. :D
Welcome...I'm a newbie here too.....why a fixed gear?

Well because I like it to be simple, I like the retro-ness feeling of it (even though I may eventually get down to doing a conversion instead of getting a proper track frame), I love the look of lugged steel frames and flat crown forks, and I am looking to improve my pedal stroke.
Edit: Definitely not because it is cheap to run a fixed as I have to order almost everything necessary online in the US or other shops, and get them to ship to me here in South-East Asia. The shipping cost is killing me. :(
