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)

LBS is the way to go. Even a high LBS mark up (although unlikely for nuts and bolts), would be minimal compared to high shipping prices online....

It was hard as hell for me to locate a fomula locknut locally, finally found one at a shop that was a little more ssfg specific than the others.

If there is an upgrade out there I would also be interested to know of it.
