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)

there was a thread about this a while ago. I'm gonna be the jerk who says "search."
but I think the consensus on that thread was you don't need anything industrial, a basic home machine works just as well. I have a Viking 415 that does everything I need it to do.
