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)

have you called around to the usual tarck suspects like Trackstar, Chari, NYC Bike Works, and King Kog?

I usually put in a few phone calls until I find a store that has what I need in stock and then I swing out and pick it up. saves a lot of time over web searches or going door-to-door.

The guys at Continuum are always super helpful and nice + they tend to keep some harder to find stuff in stock. The guys at chari are always crazy nice as well. Same with Bike works. Affinity is pretty good too.

The people at King kog and trackstar can be total c0cks, and I would never give them a dime.
