    asdfghjkl; you should get a bikesdirect fixed gear bike. THey are a very cheap (300ish) and simple way to try fixed gear and it's easy to thread on a freewheel or pay someone to do it.

    No, she really isn't.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Go for it (random string of letters). You could convert an old road bike (see sheldonbrown.com) if you are handy, or as was mentioned above go for the bikesdirect single speed.

    They are fun.

    That string of letters is not even close to random. They were chosen in that order to so that the keys would be less likely to jam on old typewriters.

    And yeah, the BD bike is a good choice. It's also super easy to convert a bike, particularly if you just want to try singlespeed.
