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)

Doesn't Canada have any bike shops you can go to and test things out. Or at least go to bike shop and order from a distributor?

That^ makes my stomach queasy... speaking of which, there should probably be a bottle of pepto-bismol in the bottle cage instead.

The pure fix premium is hella nice for a first bike. It's Chromoly, I wouldn't suggest building up that frame you linked.

Wasted your money dude, I saw the same frame set with headset sell for about $100 on ebay last week in excellent condition. I could have probably built this bike up for $500

Wow. Look at the profile pic of the stem. The faceplate clamp is on super crooked and the closer bolt in the pic has been tightened to the point where it is badly bent. Crazy bad wrenching, unless it's the pic, but I doubt it.

It looks really cool when you put your nice khaki shorts and a checks shirt with Sperry's on your feet and your wayfarers and roll down the hill on campus.

The price seems a bit steep. Any thoughts on what a decent offer would be? Not too often that a fixed gear pops up for sale in my town.
