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)

Track Frame/Fork and Tricks

So I've had my FG bike for about a month now. I'm starting to master the backwards circles and no handed track stands. But I know not to try any other **** with my carbon fork. So what frame/fork combo would you suggest?

Is it not safe to skid (and lean on) when you have a carbon steerer?

It saddens me when I see someone whose first post is a thread resuscitation.
