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)

acquiring parts online?

i'm building up a fixie, and was wondering what some of the better online sites were for acquiring various parts. i've got the meat of the bike, the frame, wheels and crankset, but what are some good places for pedals, bars, chains, saddles etc?

Harris Cyclery.
Also, the build-up kits from IRO Cycle aren't bad.

I'm assuming you're looking for inexpensive parts.
