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 am looking to build another fixed gear on a new frame. What is a good all-around frame.

Make sure you fully tarck it out to get the best out of it though. Veeps (front Spok is OK), Phil hubs, Sugino 75 cranks, track pedals with double straps (make sure you ride these with Vans, they are the most comfy), risers or track drops with no grips.

I was going to suggest an '80s touring frame, but this beats it by miles. Tell me, can you really ride those under water?
