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)

i suggest a plastic quick release type. they clamp on to the seatpost or seat tube. i would advise against the one shaped like a "V" with a hinge that adjusts the height... the hinge loosens as you ride and it flops down on the rear tire. not cool!

the style that clamps to the frame is strong and understated.. and keeps your booty dry.

I have a zefal one similiar to what schloe mo described. It has a plastic clip that fits onto the seat tube and mounts onto a little clip attached to the seat stay bridge where your brake would normally go. Works like a charm.
