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)

Brakes on a SS

Can you drill holes for back wheel brakes on frames that don't come with them? Or does it totally ruin frames?

it really depends on the size and style of the bridge. some are thick enough for it, some aren't.

You could get some of the clamp on brakes that track racers put on their bikes. That way you aren't drilling a hole in a beautifully undrilled frame.
