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)

Buying my first actual fixie

I'm not planning on buying it anytime soon, but I'm thinking into the future. So which sounds better, go for the Kilo TT and some better wheels, or a custom Milwaukee Bicycle Co. bike?

warning: actual fixie does not equal actual bike

Not a custom frame, just building a bike using their bike builder on the site.
