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)

I reckon we should all go to TT's place, test ride everyone one of his bikes, choose the best and sell it to the OP for a grand, the proceeds to go towards financing a party.

Seriously, just kidding. Now if you meant the worst bike in that price range, that'd be your answer.

I agree. I picked up a Wabi classic about a month and a half ago and love it. Only thing I had to do was swap the seat and tired. A great bike and Richard is the nicest guy to deal with.
