    Is it just me, or is a fixed gear or single speed mountain bike an oxymoron? Please let me know if there's any legitimate reason for removing all the gears from a mountain bike, 'cos if there is, I probably need some kind of brain adjustment.

    some info here: http://www.mtbr.com/ssfaqcrx.aspx#ssWhySS can't say if any of their reasons are "legitimate" but will hopefully shed some light on the subject for you

    Checked out the link. I understand why someone would want to ride a single speed or fixed gear bike (which is what the site - and the site it links to - explains). But what I don't understand is why someone would want to ride a single speed or fixed gear MOUNTAIN bike. I mean, I guess you 'can' go off-road with a single gear, but why would anyone want to? Or is it that these folks are using their MTB as an SUV and just riding it on the road? If so, why not ride a road bike fixie - surely it's lighter and quicker?

    I mean, surely fixies are all about simplifying and speeding up the ride, but as I see it, MTBs slow it down and complicate matters with suspension and inefficient knobby tyres. I guess I just don't get it.

    BTW, offroad single-speed MTB riding is somewhat common. I have seen a couple of videos of fixed MTB, but that would really have to suck on almost every hardcore MTB trail.

    Single-speed Cyclocross is fairly common, also. SSCXWC in Seattle Oct 24th, if you're in the neighborhood.

    There's a mountain bike trail system a few miles from my house, about 12 miles of convoluted loops. But most of it is pretty flat. There's a few spots where they have big dips, but they can be bypassed. And, the North Shore Trail over by Lake Grapevine is one of the more popular trails around here. It's flat with some sort of problem spot about every half mile. But in either case, a single speed would work fine for most of it.

    They look good! But he keeps them outside?

    I hope it's not another thing like that giant Toronto theft ring. Probably not, and I don't even know why that sprang to mind.

    I had to click on this ad, obvious typo:

    "12 Speed Swin Road Bike"

    I figured the text of the ad would straighten the mixup out. Sure enough it did:

    "12 speed swine road bike excellent condition"

    This bike sounds like a real pig...

    We can pay $80 for a tandem bike.

    http://slo.craigslist.org/bik/1940424893.html

    I bet they can't afford helmets, either.

    Make dreams come true for two college grads!

    My best friend and I have wanted a tandem bike to ride around on for as long as we can remember. The idea is that one of us will steer and the other will sit on the back seat and play bongo drums. We went to college together and couldn't get our hands on a tandem bike for the whole four years we were there. Now that we're both back in SLO, we're hoping someone will make our dreams come true.

    If you have a tandem bike, can make a tandem bike, or know of someone else who can make one or has one and is willing to part with it, let us know!

    The only problem is, because we are starving college graduates, we probably can't pay more than about $80. (Especially since we still have to buy the bongo drum to go with it.)

    We know you're out there, just waiting to fulfill our dreams! Shoot us an email and we will get back to you in a charming and quick manner.
