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)

not trying to spark a flame war...just curious... why do you use aerospoke?

the wheels are overpriced, heavy, not too aerodynamic, and outdated technology.

yea they look awesome, but so do a ton other wheels for a fraction of the price and far more utility

This.

I ride my Aerospoke because it's bulletproof, easy to lock up, and I got it dirt cheap (Not as cheap as Scrod...)

Name a few if you don't mind. I meant in the same "aerodynamic" style as the Aerospoke.

FWIW, they are solid as **** and they sound awesome when you bomb down a hill.
