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)

Thanks! Yeah, she does. She's used to a more upright position so it was a little different for her, might try some other bars. I found out I love moustache bars though.

Also, it was supposed to have half clips but the LBS ran me $80 over the budget for front tire & headset/bb installation.
