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)

Switched from SS to fixed... i like it

my rear brake is all jacked so I flipped the wheel over and rode fixed to work this morning... I think I'm gonna stick with it.

don't really know why I'm posting this. But I'm also thinking about spending some $$ to get a nice freewheel and better brakes. We'll see how it plays out.

I've been thinking about going from fixed to SS. The grass is always greener.

No, it doesn't. It implies he doesn't want to ride with only one means of braking (front brake only.)
