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)

That Schwinn looks amazing man, but it looks like a road bike, 100% road bike. It looks nothing like fg-inspired.

Seen many more miles than anything else I own, by a pretty wide margin.
Freshly bartaped and ready to be abused.

anyone care to point out a good/cheap place to pick up a multispeed, deep section road wheelset?
i think its possible to get velocity deep Vs with a multispeed hub, but im not really scoring well in the google search department, anyone care to point me in a good direction?

Bicycle Wheel Warehouse's got some road wheels, but they might be spaced at 130mm.

nice Vixtor. Cheap enough option. Might get one for my Peugeot. (I've decided to keep it geared for now coz it's my only road bike)
But i want to get a new wheelset coz the rims were ill treated and the braking surface is messed up and the hubs aren't that great enough for me to re-lace to another rim.
But the frame is 126mm and I might have to spread it to go 8/9/10spd. And then i'll need a new rear derailleur too. Ugh!! decisions!!

Can't say I'm a fan of the flop and chops, but I like the brake/shifter setup.

Oh no argument here, those bars were certainly an economics/convenience choice rather than an aesthetic one.

I've stuck with them... well, probably because I don't know any better.
