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)

Question About Charge Videos...

Hey I'm assuming someone has seen the sweet vids of those crazy brits doing some nice things on their bikes. They're on vimeo if you haven't. I was just wondering if anyone knows what wheels they're using, I'm really looking for that kind of durability. Thanks!

if you want durability...bombproof your wheels with B43 (or another deep section rim) rims and phil wood hubs w/ dt spokes
