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)

Is it worth it?

I have a WeThePeople Avenue 24" BMX, and a local guy wants to trade me an Origin 8 fixie for it.
My bike has a mix of stock and aftermarket parts on it.
stock wheels, stock frame and fork.
The after market parts are Fit Flow cranks, fly potencia stem, MacNeil seatpost, animal pedals, animal seat clamp, rogue status seat, k-rad tires and S&M Medium LT bars.

His bike is a Origin 8 Del Pasado Frame and Fork, O8 cranks, O8 Carbon fiber stem, Velocity wheels and I can't identify the rest of the parts, but I have pictures.
Is the trade worth it?

Here is a link to my picasa album with the pictures
