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)

Only ******* ride machined veep dee's. kna mean?
Fer realz, just skip the middle man and get some arrospoks, or better yet, a front arrospok and a back disk, then cut down your risers so they are approximately 8" wide and ride platforms sans clips.
ya dig?
