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)

Going joined the single gear crowd

Just got back from my LBS and purchased a new Hardrock Sport. I am having them put a rigid fork, Armidillo Nimbus Tires, fenders, bar ends, and converting it to a SS. I will mainly use it for my short commute, but once a week will get used for light trail riding. I needed a bike I could jump off curbs and be rough with. I was going to go for as ingle speed Cross bike, but the way the Hrdrock fit me was great. Cant wait to ride it to work tomorow after I pick it up.

sounds exciting. I am getting a new jamis ss soon and I plan on swapping the fork for a surly 1x1. It should be nice. I hope you enjoy it, it makes the ride a bit less boring.
