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)

So I broke down and bought it.....

a Redline 9.2.5. It was cheap as the dealer is kinda a strange dude, and the fenders are missing. It needs some serious adjustment on the rear break, but I won't need that after I get used to it
anyway it is my entry into the world of single speeds, so we'll see how it goes

for the money I don't think any first time fixrider could go wrong with a 925...I like it compared to the SanJose Bianchi...plus the price is right. I'm thinking about getting a 29er Monocog to play around on...always wanted a Redline BMX as a kid.
