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)

Single Speed rear brake question

I've got a track frame that I'd like to build into a single speed. The problem is that it has no hole drilled for a rear brake to be mounted. I'd obviously want two brakes, any solutions for me? Thanks.

Yes, I have seen for sale a bracket that bolts across the seat stays to fit a rear brake. Check Ben's Cycles.
