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 am sorry you feel that way, if I got the windsor in Italy I obviously have a way to get the kilo tt or any American bike from Brooklyn to Italy.
If someone has a good used bike size 58 and up in new York area I will consider it.
Thank again everyone.

You're doing deliveries - the bike is going to get knocked around and, maybe, stolen.
Buy a second hand bike. Just make sure the bearings are greased and adjusted (which is why loose balls are good), the chain is oiled and the wheels are true - all stuff you can do yourself. Keep your better bikes for when you're NOT doing deliveries.

I'm with Scrod on this thread.
