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)

No, awful judgement.

All City cranks are great unless you're planning on hurling yourself off of loading docks, but if you want more bang go for Omniums. 75's are pretty and all the hipsters will be on your dick, but you can get the same performance for far less.

LBS I spoke to highly recommends them. The arms remind me of the Bulletproof ones, while the chainring is very similar to the Origin8.
