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)

Is a bolt on chainring necessary on a fixed gear?

Is a bolt on chainring necessary for fixed gear bikes or could you go with a BMX style setup? Thanks for your responses.
