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)

My first road bike was a Raleigh R500 and it was a miserable ride. I had to ditch it for a smoother frame.

It's probably also got vertical dropouts which will limit your choices a lot.
