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)

In the market

Ok, first all, I'm a roadie who just stumbled over here, but I'm on a mission . I love road cycles, always will, but I hate riding mine in the slop. I have a fat tire, but the gearing is not my thing, so, I'm shopping for a singlespeed. I think I have narrowed it down to three choices:

1) Sofa King
2) Wily
3) Gary Fisher Rig

I'll take any and all input you have, good, bad or indifferent. I also have the option of transforming an old (1998) Schwinn Mesa into a s/s, but I think I want to keep it the way it is, unless someone shows me the light.

Let's see some pictures of the Mesa. You can always convert it back after the winter (as long as you don't take the dremel to those braze-ons and d-hanger
