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)

single speed cyclocross

I am looking at a couple of Felt Breed bikes, one complete, one frame and parts only,

I have a habit of getting fixated on a single brand/style of bikes (motorycles too) and often wish I had investigated other brands and end up with a better choice than my first pick.

Any input on SS Cyclocross style bikes that may fill the bill before I toss some money around is appreciated.

Weight is a big factor here, I'd like to hit the 20lb mark if possible,

Thanks!

All City Nature Boy is the first that comes to mind, not certain how heavy it will build up though. I will say that most of the modern single speeds I'm seeing aren't being built with single speed frames, they're using a regular bike and running an eccentric BB to make it work so that disc brakes are still an option.

Thanks Russ,

I am eying a Posiden FX right now as well as a couple of Breeds that have popped up FMP in the area. Want to keep it simple and light , my road SS bikes are always a joy, just float in your hands and, really. in Fl gears can be viewed as overkill if you ride alone.

Would this Cinelli fit the bill?
