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)

Perhaps we should all send them email asking REAL fixed gear questions like:
Do you carry 16T EAI cogs?
Can I use a freewheel hub to build a fixed gear wheel and just locktite the cog on?
Do I need any brakes on my fixed gear cycle?

Those bikes aren't really even fixed. you can stop pedaling with enough pressure and the flywheel will keep spinning a little. I think it has some sort of friction gear instead of a real fixed cog. If those people ever got on a real fix it would throw them in a second.

I would show up for class in knickers, t-shirt, kryptonite belt, and fully loaded bag. Put a PBR in the bottle holder, pull out a utility knife and slice through any brake/tension cables and start screaming at the other riders to get the eff out of my way. Trying to crab walk the bike across the floor would also be in order.
