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)

How does it ride? I'm hopefully going to be picking up a similar model but keeping it multi geared.

Saved the OEM parts so I can resurrect it later if the owner doesn't like it.
The rear cassette wouldn't come off, even with LBS and a good vise, so I left it alone.

1. His he going to pay?
2. At least the frame looks structurally sound.
3. That fork is a survivor.

I didn't want to start a whole new thread and I don't know where else to ask this, but does anyone know of convenient indoor space-saving bike racks? I've seen a set-up with a tall double-sided post that holds one bike above another but I wouldn't know where to buy one. Suggestions? Pics?

Really nice looking.

That is another thread, but there are tons on the market, and if I had my druthers, I'd get one that holds 4, 2 to a side, freestanding. Works in living areas and garages. You can get racks anywhere from Lowe's home improvement ($2 hooks to $5 wall mounts) to Harbor Freight ($10 overhead pulleys) to Target ($30 2-bike freestanding, some others) to Performance/Nashbar, and your LBS.

As far as "space-saving?" l:
Wrong thread for that, I think. More space = More bikes.

Yes, Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2 was awesome, as was Sigourney Weaver in Alien(s).
Some of my favorite movies/women when growing up.
