    Okay thanks alot.

    Out of curiosity, are there any bikes like the http://store.citygrounds.com/store/p...ix-Trick-Bike/ that are single speed? That you know of?

    I'm just thinking now if I cant get exactly what I want in fixed I'd be happy with single speed I think. If you take a look at the quick link above that is almost the perfect bike for me. Is there any sort in single speed?

    But these are custom I believe. Can you get similar ones stock?

    This will be my last annoying post I promise
    Or single speeds like this

    That Specialized is singlespeed. It has a 10t cassette driver in place of a FW, which is why the gearing is so small.

    They're quite nice ^^

    And yes I have dropped fixed speed as now it seems I wont get what I want in fixed, and I'd be just as happy with single speed.


    Any idea on other bikes similar shape/looking to these







    ?

    Honestly, that Specialized is awesome. The specs are really sweet too.

    I admit it really does. When ordering what does it mean when choosing short or long? :s

    And are you sure its single speed not fixed gear?

    It has a driver, definitely not fixed. I have no idea on the short and long thing. The only options I see are the s/m/l sizes.

    Even though I don't ride fgfs, I can still geek on how cool the bikes look.

    Is there any way to turn fixed into single speed?

    I love the look of these bikes but could maybe do with it single speed

    If you got a flip-flop hub, its as easy as threading a freewheel on there. Otherwise, get a new wheel or hub and go ham, dude.

    Run a brake unless you TedShred on the reg.

    Thanks for the reply. I do, however, have no idea what ham or ted shred is

    But I think what your'e saying is that it IS generally simple to turn a fixie into a single speed?

    The specialized P. Fix that you posted comes with a flip flop hub so you can convert it to fixed very easily. It comes stock as a single speed so to convert it to fixed you just have to turn the wheel around and put a fixed cog and lockring on it

    Ok thanks!

    I dont mean to derail the thread too much, but do you think these sort of bikes (single speed) would be too unfomfortable to cruise on? Even with the seat risen?

    The p.fix is not flip flop. They use their own system where you bolt the driver in place if you want to go fixed, and either loosen or take out the fixed bolts to let it coast. **** is sweeeeeet

    EDIT: From the P. Fix specs "Rear hub: convertible fixed/freewheel cog driver cassette, 4x sealed cartridge bearing, CNCd 10t cog driver, hollow 14mm Cr-Mo axle, 23mm contact, 17mm axle nuts, 36h"

    But its sold with a 10t driver and a 28t sprocket. Not super cheap to just give up and replace.

    EDIT: I missed MincedFeets post, and I missed that in the specs about the convertible thing on the cassette. But I personally wouldn't want to pin that thing and have it fail. That would be scary.

    op...you'd be better off putting that p-fix on hold along with forgetting all the bad info you have gotten in this thread.

    your 1st pics were bmx (maybe bmx cruisers?) & the ones you just posted are dirt jumpers. you obviously like that sloping toptube with a low, angled-back seat look but it doesn't work so good for fixed gear, or for riding any distance unless you have great legs & can handle standing on your pedals almost all the time.

    you need to take a time-out & decide what it is you really want in a bike

    have fun & good luck...

    Those first pics were cruisers, correct. But once people were posting pictures of fgfs bikes, he said thats what he was looking for. And in the video he posted, he stated times when people were riding fgfs bikes. I think its safe to say thats what he's been looking for.

    Most of the fixed gear freestyle bikes you want are usually sold frame only. That picture of Ed Wonka is a GRIME G.O.A.T. The specialized p fix is the best bike for tricking if your into the 26" wheels. That bike is solid as ****. Also check out volume thrasher completes and the Subrosa completes. This is the wrong place to ask stuff about fgfs go over to tricktrack.org and ask questions.

    Thanks for all the advice guys, much appreciated.

    I think now ive come to the conclusion I AM looking for a fgfs LOOKING bike, but a single speed would be more versatile and suited to me.

    So basically a single speed fgfs-looking bicycle. The Spec P.Fix is the only one I have come across thus far.

    On all of those bikes you can put a flip flop hub on them and run either fixed gear or single speed. The thing you want to look for is a bike that has brake mounts so you can use a front and back brake if your running single speed. Volume thrasher completes come with a free wheel so you can coast but no breaks. The grime goat isn't drilled for breaks. I ride a SE us versus them frame and it's drilled for front and back brakes but I ride it fixed so i'm brakeless. Most of the good fgfs frames your going to have to buy the frame then build it up yourself there's not many fgfs bikes that come complete. Just find a frame you like make sure its drilled for brakes and get a wheelset with a flip flop hub and some brakes.

    Ah ok thanks.

    The Volume Vandal looks perfect. Could that be riden single speed with a flip flop hub?

    I think I'll have to do some research as I have no idea were to start when building my own bike!
