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)

As cool as ankle biters are and it is well known that chicks dig guys with their pants in their socks-- has anyone ever put a chainguard on their bike and if so what would you recommend?

Heres a pic of my bike:
