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)

Deep V's online?

Yep, yep, I know they're played out, I know they're typical, yadda yadda yadda, whatever .. where's a good place to get some built up online? Not too fond of my local shops and, well, my wheel-building skills are dismal, on the best day ...
