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)

mark v or jamie roy?

which one of these would be better for city riding/commuting in fair weather? i have a winter bike, so that wont be an issue. and also besides the tubing whats the difference between the mark v and mark v pro?

i'm not sure about the mark v but the jamie roy's got braze ons for rear brake and water bottles. it's insanely light and ready for brakes out of the box. i love it, no regrets.
