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)

Cool singlespeed video

I found this short video while trying to find information on acheiving the correct chain tension (which it talked almost nothing about).

I googled "proper chain tension single speed" and it was listed on the second page of links. I thought it was pretty well done. If anything it goes to show that you can recycle an old bike and make something practical and fun.

Disregard the above post. My computer screwed up and I couldn't see anything beyond BRANDUNE's post...sorry about that.

Why shut it down, babychris?
