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)

Favorite online SS/fixed vendors?

What vendors do you guys use online? The following are ones I have experience with, but nash and performance aren't ss/fixed specific and their selection bites.

Harris Cyclery
bicyclewheels.com
nashbar
performance bike

Glorycycles has really good customer service. Like, really really good. They just started stocking more SS/FG stuff, but their prices are a little high.

Another nod to Ben's Cycle. Two orders were spot on and the wheelset I got has been great so far.

I also use Nashbar & Performance but only for hella cheap stuff like $6 Michelin Speediums or my fantabulous $74 CF Forte fork.

+1 to that. Good for some hard-ish to find stuff.

Harris, too. http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/ Excellent service, willing to order anything. Lots & lots of info on their site.
