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)

i love them. they seem ideal for street shoes around town, and are comfortable on longer rides.

i bought a black pair for my gf, but i'm stuck on rx-1 w/ the cleats 4 lyfe.

incidentally, why isn't there any material in the middle? wouldn't it make sense to put something other than a gaping hole at the center of the pedal?
