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)

Fixed Gear Brands

I was browsing around the internet and looking at bikes and realized that I don't know that many fixed gear makers. I was wondering what other fixed gear manufactures there are and which are your favorites.

The ones I know are:
Aventon
Leader
Unknown
Fuji
Cinelli
17teeth

do you want a track frame or road designed frame or does it matter to you? do you want a brake or brakes? does the weight of the frameset matter to you? check out the gearing to determine if you will need to replace the cog, no big deal, or chainring, bigger deal, or both. there's a love fest around here for the BD Kilo TT as being great value for $. I know nothing about them. I have a Wabi which is a road geo with track dropouts and high bottom bracket for fixed gear. I did a century on it Saturday as comfortable or no more uncomfortable as on one of my geared road bikes.

Just ordered a F550s frameset from Factory Five. Their stuff seems legit.

my japanese friend from SF said theres a brand called "penis" coming out soon, the lookbook looks SICK, i'm definitely gripping a frame. It's like a mix between Cdale track and NJS. v tight. v legit. funny that the brand is called "penis" though, but whatever the builds so far look rad. maybe its an irony thing, maybe its lost in translation.
