    New to the scene

    Hi! I'm currently getting into fixed gears because I need more cardio for exercising also for commuting to school. I was looking into buying one for 200-250. Can anyone direct me to any sites that may have it for that much? I don't really care if its a bianchi, cannondale, or even a republic. It just has to be a simple fixed gear that I can use for everyday biking. Appreciate any help given!

    I wish I could get a Bianchi track bike for 200-250. "even a republic" is about twice your budget. The cheapest bike on BD is 30 over your budget too http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...cane/track.htm
    I would recommend searching craigslist or converting a road bike.

    I don't care if the scene is dead. I'm not gonna ride fixed just so I can be cool. I'm using it as transportation to school and for exercise since gas prices and my weight seem to be going up. Also, I'm not really looking to buy a top tier bike as of now any bike even no brand bikes will do if anyone is selling.

    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
