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)

Ok fixed gear?

You might be tired of these threads but i'm just curious on your guys's opinion. It seems most new fixed gears under $400 are seen as low quality. Would the same opinion go for this Schwinn as well?

Fixed gears seem to be pretty basic in parts so I guess i'm wondering what problems would arise.

I've been riding a no name fixed that I got off ebay for that price since July of last year. I ride it 15 or 20 miles 3 days a week and longer rides on the weekend and haven't had any problems except worn out tires.

No rack or fender mounts... only two see two reviews, and no list of components.
