Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Stupid question

Its kind of stupid, but I was looking at FG for commuting and endurance riding, but I've got zero clue where to start with a bike like this.

How do you stop? I've noticed that most of the ones I'm seeing, Mercier TT on ebay - don't have a brake at all.


Thanks for any info, sorry about the stupid question

Think about the bikes (mostly single speeds) you rode as a kid. Bring back any memories or reveal any clues?
