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)

I ordered one through a bike store before I actually started looking into other fixed gear options but it was back ordered a few times so I said **** it and got an IRO.

i figured more people would have one because its not the budget track bike but its a step above. Do you like the bike? Or have anything to compare it to?

I like my bike but it seems I'm just getting a wee bit tall for a 49cm frame, IMO I think its a pretty stiff frame.

it's a nice looking bike. fuji finally decided to drop the gaudy road-style decals they were going with, and the grey/black theme with satin clearcoat is pretty nice. the typeface of the fuji text bothers me for nitpicky designer reasons.

a friend has one built up with nice components and it's a solid looking bike.
