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)

Ben's cycle has a wheelset for $97 and they're good quality. The crank you can go with anything on ebay for around $60 (Sugino) and the saddle is anything you like basically. Don't forget a chain and cog too which should put you around the $200 mark, give or take a few more $$.

So...are you gonna figure anything out about your "build" or should I just come over tomorrow and do all the part sizing work for you?

Get whatever seet feels good on your buut.

you could certainly keep the flat bars, but chop 'em down a bit.
