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)

Best stock fixie?

What's the best stock fixie to buy? I'm looking for a flip flop hub. And maybe bullhorn like handles if possible. Does anyone know a good stock fixie? (maybe around $500 ish? But let me know what you've seen that's really good) thanks

I picked up some great sirloin tips, corn on the cob and fresh potato salad at the local butcher shop this afternoon. About to crack open some cold suds, fire up the grill and have a post-Rapture feast!

One of these days a noob will actually believe you and buy a Big Shot bike, hate it, and never cycle again.

I doubt that half of the guys who ask these questions would care. Also, are they any worse than the 20+ year-old hi-ten 10 speeds all the hipsters ride these days? Gotta keep a little perspective.

All I had today was a 1/2 lb flamethrower meal with a Dr. Pepper and a medium chocolate Heath blizzard.

Remember when Fabio was hit in the face by a bird while riding a rollercoaster in Virgina back in 1999? I remember watching it on the news and not being able to breathe because I was laughing so hard.



The blonde chick next to him is totally like "Oh come on, dude...that was funny!" but he's not having it at all. So good.

Sorry, this is what everyone does to the new people sometimes... Especially since the same question gets asked every day.

Scroll the first couple pages of SS/FG or do a search. You'll find what you're looking for, I promise.
