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)

usually on the track you slow down gradually enough
that the pressure isn't enough to unscrew the cog...

I'm curious, what's the deal with "Bounded and soldered spokes on front and rear wheel." I mean, why would one do that?
