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)

Good Deal?

Porsche made in Germany by Ferbedo. Owner's manual, good condition. Cost $250 new, sell for $125.


Is this a good deal? I'm just starting fixie riding and I want to get a fast whip I can go brakeless on down to the coffee shop. Willing to spend about $2000 if it's slightly used.
Also how do you skid? I can't seem to get it because I always rip my pants when I try to extend my legs.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.
