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 just had a chance to ride one of these bikes, and i was amazed at how much i liked it. If i didn't just spend double to get my bike, i would have jumped on the Killo TT in a heartbeat. Its at great deal at $350.

now how can i collect my $$ for advertising.

My bike was stolen last week so I picked one of these up and it came in the mail today. Basically I knew what I was buying, but I didn't expect the tires to be as ****ty as they are. I did not even make it 5 miles and both tubes were flat....anyone else experience the same problems?

No actually. I've put about 30 miles on it the past weekend. No flats.

Same here, but that is just the process of checking the bike before I ride it.
