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)

Tool kit and pump

I've been stealing my dad's tools and old bike pump, which I doubt he appreciates, so I guess it's about time I get my own.

Any good deals on a small tool kit and pump?

The Topeak Alien tool has pretty much everything you need to fix your bike. For a pump, the topeak road-morph has a flip-down foot peg and a hose, which pretty much makes it the cat's sleepwear.

Cool, and both at about the price I wanted.

depends what you need. since i just run a fixy, no brakes, all i carry is a park allen wrench set with - and + heads, a 14mil wrench for my miche hub bolts, tire levers, patch kit and emergency pump. oh and an 8mil allen wrench for my crank bolts. i can do almost anything but remove the headset and the bb with all that. then again there's not that much can go wrong on my bike
