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)

Check out the Bike Stable on Frankford Ave. Chaz is supposed to be great. And I've seen a lot of used bikes hanging in the window.

or firehouse at 50th & Baltimore. They sell nothing but used bikes, and are very conversion freindly and rather cheap.
