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)

Probably not what you're looking for, but I'm currently lusting after a Kiyo.

If you are riding on the street I love my steamroller, however, I haven't rode many other frames fixed. Not very flashy though.

ducd has good taste in bikes.

its funny i love these clean, classy, true track frames but i have a langster comp. its probably cuz i know i wreck **** and would rather just break something no one is gonna be upset about.
