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)

Wheelbuilders in Phila

I have a cracked rim that needs to be replaced (thanks to our wonderful potholes). From what I have read here the quality of the build is as important as the parts used, so I am not ready to try this. Can anyone recommend a builder in Philly. BicycleTherapy? Or the fixie place just off South and 4th?
