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)

Airlines charge 50 to 80 each way for a cardboard bike box or plastic hardshell. I know there are a few shops like trackstar who rent the freight baggage bike box that is under dementions for oversize, so no extra charge. or buy one and fly 3 times. it pays for itself.
