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)

You guys are mean. The OP wants a fixie. Not because it's cool and hip, but because they want to ride a fixed gear.

I would get this one.

My apologies Dave. Safety first, of course. No offense intended. Do you rock straps and clips on that trainer, too?
