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)

They're coming soon but I've heard of no one who has them yet. I'm sure John dacey would be one of the first.

Hey-

What do you use to get such nice black? Anodizing at home, or do you have a pro setup?

No, I had a company do it... I read the DIY articles but didn't want to screw up the crank. The place I use had a $35 minimum charge... crank, chain ring and hub bodies.

dunno the cost but can't be any cheaper than the regular ones. which means around 230-250+ depending on who you go to.

EDIT: why not just call trackstar and find out.
