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)

RE last question: no. you need a campy taper, and the IRO bottom bracket is, i imagine, square taper. NOT compatible.

as for how they ride, I can't speak to that yet. still working out seatpost trouble on that bike of mine. evanyc seems to like 'em fine, though.
