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)

Domenics is definitely a bike shop worth riding to! Biggest FG selection in AZ, it's in tempe, near ASU. And riding in and around ASU is fun fun fun, up ramps and down stairs and skid room... ah.... I can't wait for my new frame....

...i grew up there and yes, drivers do SUCK. but domenics is a cool shop. if you're a student (or have a student ID) they'll give you 10% off. and if you find yourself in downtown phoenix, slippery pig is a great shop, but they're more into singlespeed mtb stuff. regardless, either place has great mechanics and can order whatever you need.

Dominic's is where it's at. Dudes there know what they're talking about. Tempe Bicycles West down the street on University has a lot of goofy weird stuff, if you need goofy weird stuff.

hahaha it's so true, lots of weird stuff.


Now is it just me, or do all the Landis shops make you feel really uncomfortable?

I've never been there; only pass by it. I met one of the guys that work there and he was the biggest stereotypical pompous bmx ******* imaginable. And my heart lies with Domenic's so I have no reason to go there.

Domenic's is the only fixed game in town. They also have the largest selection of Campagnolo parts I've seen around here.

Domenic's has the pursuit frame. I want it so bad but I'm afraid to ask how much it is.
