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)

*resisting urge not to complain about people using the word 'like' as above in written communication (it's bad enough when spoken)*

You're correct. Hi-Ten is junk.

from another site: Hi-Ten:
Short for high tensile steel. Basically what your car, your washing-machine and your lawnmower are made out of. It’s strong, if you use enough of it, but frames made with it end up feeling heavy and have a dead ride.
