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)

that's a tough question. sheldon has a bunch of good info here http://sheldonbrown.com/fixed-conversion.html , but at a guess, all you're going to need is a rear wheel and a cog, which should set you back about $120.

if your frame has vertical dropouts it gets trickier.

iro cycles sells great wheels, and tony (the owner) is a great guy http://www.irocycle.com/id67.html

(he posts here under the handle tony arms)

good luck, feel free to ask questions, and post a pic when you're done!
