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)

Really depends what you're looking for in a bike.

Single or fixed?

Brakes or brakeless?

More track or road geometry?

preferably fixed, the option of adding a front brake if needed. And yeah, track geometry is preferred.

Really does suck. Mine got ordered in late June as a birthday present and they sold too many of the black 53's apparently so now I don't get a birthday present. Oh well.

I think that one will be hardpressed in any case not to just wait, save a bit more money, and buy a Steamroller or a Pista. That's what I did, and I have no regrets.

Yeah I think I'm going to see if maybe I can get the refund money to use towards a Steamroller, once I can save up the extra $300. Time to get those extra hours in at work for me. Heh heh.
