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)

nah. id rather learn on rad stuff. it makes me try harder. id just get drunk and mess up a set of free spirit forks like i did last night if it was all practice. it needs it to be worth the effort if im gunna file for 4 hours.

Paul's aren't flashy, but I like the built-in adjusters and they've been great so far...

I'll throw a change up here, and change my vote to the nagasawas

whatever you do, having a graduated measure, or some kind of lock/tug nut would be trick.

split your lungs with blood and thunder
when you see the white whale
break your backs and crack your oars men
if you wish to prevail

I have a ***** for those courage drop outs. I'd go for anything with a bottle opener personally.
