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)

Getting into fixed biking..

Hey guys, I'm definitely interested in upgrading my road bike now and get a fixed gear bike for Boston's Spring/Summer season next year. All your bikes in the picture thread blows me away and I'm super jealous. I'd like to be recommended some places where I can buy a complete set, or would I have to buy parts and build it?

If I need to build it, what are some good sites in getting me started?

I want something identical to this:

My tommaso looks almost exactly the same. I built it up though, the kilo tt is your best bet and cheapest.
