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)

Hey All',

Currently trying to build a foldable fixed gear/singlespeed for my gf's birthday present. Just wondering do any of u guys have some awesome foldables fixed gear pic? So i could get some idea.

Any opinions?

Are there any disadvantages to a folding bike? How does the ride compare to an agressive road or track bike?
