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)

sooo, they really dont seem that bad. Its just people talk about "problems" but as mentioned in the thread no one yet came up with a perticular example of having any of those "problems". I think i might go with them, for a reagular daily riding around i cant see them being any bad.
