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)

It would help if you gave us a budget.

In addition to what Deshi suggested, there are also Andels (and all the rebadged version of it), and cheaper varieties like Eight Inch and the likes.

Budget, bike, use, age, etc. Those are the things that would help us make a proper recommendation.

For the OP, I like my eighthinch cranks. Yea, they are heavy, but they are cheap and feel sturdy enough for me. That being said, my 125 pounds doesn't put too much stress on my equipment.

Wrapture is really good but I get burned out on that place.

We're talking about next Monday though, so if I don't eat there for the rest of the week maybe I'll go for it. There's also a new place over on Rantoul called 'The Farm' that supposedly makes a mean pulled pork sandwich...

We still don't know any sort of details regarding what the OP is actually looking for. Until we get some, I declare this a food thread.

I had roasted pork belly, sauteed broccoli with sesame oil, and butter sauteed tofu with jasmine rice for dinner. I eat incredibly well for a college student.

Scrod hates broccoli.

I love broccoli but I'm craving for some lentil soup and rotti.

I had a bacon egg sandwich for lunch. And 4 cheese Cheezits.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD THICK CUT BACON?????? It is infinitely better than regular bacon.

Also, farm raised organic eggs are really, really good. It sucks that they're $4 for a carton of 12, though.
