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)

I've got the Fantom29 (same deal but geared rather than SS) and I absolutely love it. Excellent if you're ready for some intense trails, but with the 29" wheels you'll get bored on the simple stuff rather quickly. I ride with my buddy who's got standard 26" wheels, and he's constantly getting stuck and having to walk over elements that I roll over like toothpicks.
