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)

Anyone riding a Raleigh Furley?

Looking for a winter commuter SS/FG to complement my Steamroller... Also one that could conceivably hit some light trails and to bring camping at outdoor bluegrass fests when I'd normally bring my ancient (and monumentally heavy) Ritchey Outback.

Found an All-City Nature Boy on CL for a good price, but it was just too big for me. (it was a 61cm, and I'm 6'1".) So, until I can stumble upon a used 58cm ACNB, I'm intrigued by the Raleigh Furley...

Steel frame, disc brakes, eccentric bottom bracket... lists at $850; street price probably around $750...

Anyone here own one of these?
