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)

Sorry. We all moved away.

Seriously though, just go to Broadway Cafe or Acme Bicycle Company and you'll find some people.

Also try IM'ing sugarpill on here. He's the only one that I know of around here that still lives around the area. Good luck.

I live in the KC area (Overland Park), but I have yet to discover the fixie community that I know must be lurking around somewhere. Right now, I'm at K-State anyway.
