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)

You should just get a custom Yamaguchi or Geekhouse or Icarus or something fancy like that because you'll have so much street cred.

Seriously?

Could you add a little more information, like what kind of riding you do?

The Yamaguchi Messenger is nice.High ten stays and 4130,a custom handbuilt pake for $1700.I'm sad that geekhouse ran out of the curved seattubes,i like the rock city.

I would recommend the Mongoose Full Suspension. It has shocks. Shocks are cool, right?
