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)

Republic Bikes?

http://www.republicbike.com/build_ar...1&product_id=6

I was wondering if anyone owns one of these, or has ridden one. The customization is cool, but I would like to know if the gear it comes with is worth the money.

Please do a little research and use the search function. They're garbage.

No problem. I wasn't trying to be a jerk or anything. It's just something that is talked about at least every three weeks here and all the threads end up saying pretty much the same thing.

What type of riding do you plan on doing and what's your price range? We can probably steer you in a better direction.
