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)

No complaints with the '10 Sputnik here. I can't comment on the others not having ridden any of them, but I love my Sputnik

Out of those, I'll go with the sputnik. Been hearing nothing but good reviews about them, also they look very nice.

i just bought a 2010 Rush Hour from my LBS for $400. at that price i's say it was a great deal. regardless i really like the bike. a lot smoother and more enjoyable to ride than my IRO was.
