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)

Help me choose between these bikes

Hi All,

Going to pull the trigger on a bike very soon.

I am looking for a single speed that I could add fenders, flat bars, front and rear brakes, and slightly thicker tires(30c-32c) to.

I have it narrowed down to these bikes on bikesdirect:


http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/mercier/kilott.htm

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...rome_paint.htm

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...ial_chrome.htm

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...r/timeline.htm

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...cane/track.htm

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/uno.htm


Let me know which one you think is best.

Timeline or FCU if you want to use wider tires.

Do you not think that the Motobecane Track or the Kilo TT's will fit a 32c tire?

How many threads are you going to start where you ask the exact same things?

Don't get the Special Chrome Edition from Mercier, the Kilo TT Stripper, it's bound to attract way too much female attention...

It's just gorgeous!

Sorry about that. I thought that I'd just start a new one to get everyone's opinion now that I have all my options narrowed down.

You don't really have anything "narrowed down" considering you posted links to half the bikes BD sells.

Please just keep posting in the other thread you keep posting in. Thanks.
