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)

What'd you get?

It would take me an hour or two to post everything bike-related I got myself in the name of holiday shopping. But my fiance' did get me an Origin 8 conversion kit for my MTB, and my ex wife got us a bottle of Stoli Razberi.

Don't convert a Cannondale XC bike to single speed. It's just lame.
